Yolla is a small town with a long history and the current owner has old paperwork and many pictures from the original store. The town has both a primary and a high school, plus a retirement village.
The current owner says the work is easy and perfect for people who like hospitality. The store itself is like a home local where people drop in to sit and talk.
There are several areas that could be further developed to increase turnover, including pre-made meals for the local retirement home.
