"The C.C. reported that a healthy sign was the erection of a large and commodious store: the stone building which still stands sturdily today, built at the instigation of John Meikle. Meikle Brothers had had a General Dealer’s certificate since 1911, the first issued by the Melsetter Licensing Board. The building of the store, supervised by a contractor, involved many residents: the stones were laid by Daantjie Steyn, Stoffel and Schalk Kloppers, Tom Williams and Barnie Marais, and the stones were lifted to the top of the wall by a small crane. Karl Neeser did the carpentering with timber most of which Andnes Kok cut in the Nyamarirwe valley in the Greenmount forest: after felling a tree, he sawed it into 18’ lengths and rolled each length onto the sawpit alongside, and with the help of two boys got the pieces cut through, taking about three weeks to cut one tree."
