Saying Goodbye to Mom and Pop Place in Neenah

Mom and Pop Place in Neenah announced this weekend that we are entering our last holiday season with this local family store.

When I was pregnant with our son, we were living in Pennsylvania and visited the area for the holidays. We stopped into Mom and Pop Place and it earned a place on my top ten reasons to wanted to move back to Wisconsin. We arrived to live here when he was 18 months old. I went back to that cute store and cafe and met some of the most amazing parents and kids. Our son met his (still!) best friend at the train table and our daughter fell in love with her first baby doll in their store.

Having Mom and Pop place exist when I was a first-time mom in a new-old place was the best of luck. Watching the store evolve while my kids grew up made it impossible to imagine that they would ever not be there. I wish that every mom could have the opportunity to get a great cup of coffee, grab some cheddar bunnies for their toddler, find an instant friend, and be surrounded by their staff that was supportive of motherhood.

Mom and Pop Place holds a warm spot in so many local moms’ hearts that it is especially sad to know that they’re closing their doors. Thank you to Adria Ramos for creating a space that was part of what makes this a great community for families.

“Mom and Pop Place, thank you for helping to shape me into the mom I am today. Without your breastfeeding pop-in groups, I never would have found the amazing group of women I’m honored to call my friends today. I never would have become an outspoken breastfeeding advocate. I never would have found a love of cloth diapers. I never would have learned about babywearing and attachment parenting. Thank you for all your hard work, Adria Ramos. Thank you for helping so many young parents find their way. Mom and Pop Place was always so much more than a store and I am heartbroken to see it go.”

“I am so sad that our Mom and Pop Place is closing. It has definitely been a quintessential business in our beloved downtown Neenah for many wonderful years. My mom told me about MAPP when we first moved back to Neenah in 2008. I went there, clueless and nervous with my newborn baby, struggling to make mom friends, and totally struggling with breastfeeding. Little did I know that upon my first step into MAPP, it would be opening up a world of wonderful moms and incredible support for everything I needed for my young family. I made lifelong friends, received priceless breastfeeding support, and was welcomed by a community of moms, dads, and families that would forever impact our lives. We loved the cafe, the incredible MAPP staff, and the diverse group of people we encountered each and every time we went. We were frequent flyers for sure, and I will forever cherish those memories!
