Youth group buys Rockland commercial property

By Stephen Betts | Jan 08, 2021

Rockland — Trekkers Inc. has bought a commercial building on Old County Road.

The sale of 325 Old County Road occurred Dec. 22 and was filed Jan. 5 in the Knox County Registry of Deeds.

The property was last used as the Covfefe Coffee and Gifts, which focused on pro-Trump items. The shop closed Nov. 4, the day after President Trump was defeated for reelection to President-Elect Joe Biden.

The sale price was $182,500. The building was owned by 325 Old County LLC whose sole member was Carrie Merchant.

Trekkers is an outdoor-based mentoring program that helps young adults discover and develop strengths through a six-year program that connects youths with participating adults.

Trekkers currently leases space at 58 Park St. in Rockland.

I was hoping it was going to be a pro-Biden store so I could finally get to shop there.
