Many Neosho residents on Friday discovered the local Meeks Store, located on South Neosho Boulevard, had closed the doors.  
A letter issued the same day by former Neosho store manager, David Enke, was shared with Neosho customers.
"The retail lumberyard as well as the retail store in Neosho will be changing operationally," Enke stated. "Those services will be available only at the Joplin store as of March 9, 2018. The current Neosho facility will now serve roofing and drywall contractors only as well as provide installation of insulation and fireplaces."
Enke indicated that all active Neosho account holders will have an account opened for them at the Joplin Meeks location with a new account number. Delivery services are available from the Joplin Meeks store to Neosho and the surrounding area.
"Call ahead service is available as well," Enke said. "We can be reached by calling 417-623-6055. We will have your order waiting when you arrive."
Enke has served as the manager of the Neosho Meeks store for the past 8 years and will now be store manager for the Meeks in Joplin.
"Thank you again for your continued support and I hope to see you at the Meeks in Joplin," Enke stated. "I've enjoyed my time at Meeks Neosho and hope that I served you well."
Meeks in Joplin is located at 510 N. Rangeline Rd..
