Melvin the Pointing Mouse

Renard's has a new building and they moved Melvin to the west side of the building facing the little playground. He is not very visible from the road anymore.

The mouse mascot of Renard's Cheese store is not named Renard, but Melvin. He originally stood next to the highway and pointed toward the parking lot. His new spot, behind the building, pointing at trees, makes him a safer if more ambiguous photo-op.
