About Us

The Mildred Store is a unique treasure as a Grocery Store, Music Venue and RV park.

We offer grocery store items, a meat market, deli meats and sandwiches (including the famous Charlie Brown Sandwich), cheeses, fresh fruits and vegetables, and special candies and deli trays for holidays, parties, and family gatherings.

Once a month, we host a free block party in downtown Mildred, with live music and family entertainment, with store and deli open late to serve the community.

The Mildred Store also owns and operates the Lazy Daz RV Park which is situated in a quiet country community. Our quaint RV Park offers 8 hook ups with water, electric and sewer along with a picnic area with tables and grills available to renters (upon request).


We are keeping the Mildred community alive.

HISTORY
During the days of prosperity in Mildred, KS, the Brown Brothers store opened in 1915. The store was then passed down through three generations, eventually changing its name to Charlie Brown’s Grocery in the mid 1940’s, and was in operation for nearly 100 years.

In 2014, Charlie Brown’s Grocery had closed its doors, leaving the community of Mildred to travel 10 minutes to the nearest grocery store. Seeing an opportunity to fill a great need in her community, Regena Lance, along with her husband Loren, decided to purchase the store soon after its closing and work towards restoring it to it's former glory.

Regena and Loren take great pride in what they have done to keep this grocery store alive with outside of the box thinking.
