Grandpa’s Feed & Pet Supply has been a staple of Waldport Oregon and South Lincoln County since 2002. Started by second generation land owner Glen McKinley and his wife Lee as a hobby business after they ran a mill on the property, the potential of the store was going to be more than they could handle by themselves so they asked their daughter Tamara if she would like to come run the store with the help of Lee. Tamara having 10 years of retail experience with Fred Myers jumped on the opportunity to work on the property she grew up on. For the next nine years Tamara grew the store with her knowledge and experience to a destination for all pet lovers from Newport to Florence.
In 2011, Tamara was offered to buy the store from Glen and Lee. Tamara is now the third generation to own the property along with her husband Adam. They have since expanded twice, brought in more than twice the inventory including gardening supplies and potting soil, to also include the addition of U-Haul in the last eight years.
