PLYMOUTH â There is one simple reason for Treatâs Squire Shopâs 45 years of service to the community.
âI have to eat dinner here; I have to look my customers in the face,â said Gary Treat. âI donât want anybody giving me dirty looks, thinking that I sold them something that wasnât the very best quality. That means loyalty. Thatâs how we survived over the years.â
