Jan Hendrickson, longtime owner-manager of Read ‘N Post in Montecito, was honored by staff members and friends during the store’s last day on Saturday, April 24. Jan was presented with two books of pictures and handwritten messages from dozens of customers and others, created by Read ‘N Post staff member Carol Finston.

The beloved store was open for nearly 40 years, and in Montecito Country Mart for the last nine years. 

The post office will continue to operate while a new store, Montecito Mercantile, gets ready to open this summer.
