Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments

Do yourself a favor and take 15 minutes to stop here. You'll find EVERYTHING and ANYTHING here. The owners are there every day and go out of their way to help you. This is the kind of store you thought only existed in Norman Rockwell paintings.

Disclaimer: I have emotional ties to this business. (wink)

I grew up in Boonville. In 1981 I went shopping in Kansas City and bought a Sony boombox for $120 (on sale at CNC Stereo). A week later a friend was admiring the boombox and asked if I had got it at Snoddy's. I was laughing until he said: "Seriously, I saw that same boombox at Snoddy's the other day for a hundred bucks."

Last fall I was helping my sister winterize her vacant house in Boonville. Orscheln's and Walmart were both out of RV antifreeze. Snoddy's had it and their price was LOWER than Walmart!

I have many more anecdotal stories I could bore you all with, but as Robert said, do yourself a favor an stop in. Snoddy's is the ideal spot to stop for groceries if you are riding eastbound and camping at the Katy Roundhouse (but buy your beer at Casey's in New Franklin after you've set up camp and are ready to relax - it's a short downhill ride back to camp and your beer won't get warm).
