Congratulations to FLEX member Ashley Sheffer, owner of Core Goods in Oil City. Core Goods was awarded a $5,000 grant through the Get on the Trail Business Plan Contest, sponsored by the Oil Region Alliance.
Core Goods is a store that sells bulk foods, produce, grab and go items and more.
Ashley wrote a concept paper and business plan, and presented her ideas to a panel of judges before being awarded the grand prize in the contest. Ashley’s plans include expanding the number of bulk bins in the store, as well as installing a filtered water station and adding a supply of reusable containers, all to offer more for trail users.
