I was kind of in a rush to do this week’s People of Peoria edition. I went to Zion Coffee and didn’t see anyone who looked like they might play along, so I went next door to a store called Rambler. Drew who owns the store along with his family was in there and luckily he played along and so here we go with another look at a Peorian in our midst!
People Of Peoria: Person Number 11—Drew
I found Drew behind the counter in Rambler and here he is in People of Peoria posing mode! He told me his family owns the store, but he manages it. He grew up in Washington, Illinois and said the store is doing very well and you can see photos of the place and read about it on their facecrack page and Instagram page. I plan on coming back here in a little bit and I’ll do a full-fledged “Shop Hop” post, but for now let’s move along with the patent-pending Peoria Favorite Five list!
The Peoria Favorite Five List
Where’s your favorite pizza in Peoria? Wow, that’s a tough one...I’m going to go with Peoria Pizza Works.
Who was your favorite Peoria teacher? (Actually, Drew went to school in Washington, Illinois, so this is his favorite Washington teacher.) That would be my vocational studies teacher, Mark Dejarnatt. He taught me for four years.
Who’s your favorite Peoria person? My Dad, Bob, for plenty of reasons.
What’s your favorite curse word? Good lousy. I try not to curse and I got that from my Grandpa.
Who would you like to give a shout-out to? I’d like to give it to our sister store, Random Boutique in Junction City. That’s my mom’s store.
