PLYMOUTH – The Dairy Heritage Center and Cheese Counter at 133 E. Mill St. will be ready for the public in early October.

The Redevelopment Authority got an update from Randy Schwoerer and Sue Barth on progress at the combination retail center/lunch counter/history museum Thursday.

“We’re looking at Oct. 9, 10 and 11 to do a soft opening,” Schwoerer, the former downtown manager who has been spearheading the project, told the RDA.

“We’re really closing in on it,” added Barth, who will manage the store. She noted that six people have been hired already for the center/counter, which will be open six days a week between Labor Day and Memorial Days, seven days a week in the summer.


MERCHANDISE DISPLAYS in the center will include an oversized milk can (below left), a model silo (below right) and a barn (above).

“All the equipment is working now. The checkout counter still needs to be finished,” Schwoerer said.

The flat-panel televisions for the interactive displays are in place and simply need the programs installed, he said. The city’s cheese companies are in the process of updating their portions of the interactive history presentation.

A special opening reception for cheese company representatives, volunteers and contributors, officials and guests will be held Tuesday, Oct. 10.

Schwoerer said the plan is to have a formal grand opening for the public after Thanksgiving, during the Holiday Gathering weekend celebration.
