Christyna Gardner, Manager, Coiner Country Store

Christyna Gardner told us about her store and her love for the area.

How did you discover Rockbridge County?
I've lived in Buena Vista most of my life, except when I was away at college.

What do you think makes the community special?
I love all the natural beauty around here, especially how green everything is in the summer. I love my little Virginia mountains.

What makes your job interesting?
One thing I love about my job is that I'm always learning new things. I've never worked at a store like this before, but it's always a lot of fun. We get quite a few people from out of town in the store, and it's always fun to meet new people, learn about where they're from, and tell them a little bit about our corner of Virginia.

Coiner Country Store is a member of PACT – Protecting All Citizen and Travelers. Christyna says hospitality is a way of life in Buena Vista—we love it when you visit, and you can see it in our eyes!
