Sustaining
stories

It's hard to know what to say or where to begin.
The coronavirus outbreak has had such an impact,
generated so many stories of suffering but also stories
of resilience and hope, that it's hard to wrap your mind
around it - or to figure out how to boil it down to a few paragraphs in a magazine.
I will tell just one story among millions. It's actually the story behind the story, or maybe
more accurately the story after the story.
The original story is one of many you will read in this month's issue, and in our coverage
at supermarketperimeter.com.
It's the story of how Magnolia River Manufacturing Corp., a Greeley, Colo.-based maker of
custom displays for perimeter grocery and other clients, came to provide safety shields for
one of its customers, St. Louis retailer Schnucks.
That story is a textbook case of how an entrepreneur had an idea and turned it, in a
matter of days, into objects keeping people safe in stores 900 miles away.
That was the part of the story relevant to the food industry and our magazine, but the
story didn't end there.
Jim Emmett, Magnolia River's president, also realized that his local hardware store
in Greeley could use protection, so he whipped out a batch for them, a version of the
pharmacy shield he designed for Schnucks.
Word got around.
"The convenience store called, then the post office. We did all the Greeley post offices,
then the LaSalle post offices," Emmett said.
Next came a call from the City of Greeley. Shields went up at all of the city's "points of
contact." One night, Emmett, his son and one of his employees worked into the night adding
shields to 19 city buses.
This story ended with my thanking Emmett for doing his little part to help protect my
nephew, a student at Greeley's University of Northern Colorado.
We all have stories like this. May they keep us strong and hopeful in the weeks and
months ahead.
