The Frontier Trading Post is Seward’s downtown grocery and specialty foods store. Specializing in gluten-free organic, paleo, vegan and fancy foods, FTP has something for everyone. Kerry Romig is omnipresent and, if you’re lucky, you might see co-owner Butch Tiner. Do you feel lucky? Hours are noon to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday at 233 Fourth Ave. 362-7802.

As far as the Seward business calendar goes, spring seems to fade in slowly until it suddenly erupts in full bloom. In contrast, September is somewhat more consistent, more in line with the sense of the old mnemonic “spring forward,” “fall back.” A deliberate month of transition, distinct steps demarcating one period of activity from another. Then, October is a month to enjoy late Autumn. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

Lights will begin to twinkle from storefront windows in the gathering dusk, beckoning the wet and windblown pedestrian. A cozy business makes for a welcome retreat in blustery weather and Seward’s merchants are savvy with the thermostat. So throw another pellet in the stove, batten down the hatches and stock those shelves, because you never know who or how many will be dashing between vehicle and welcome mat for the door.
