'Worms and Coffee' proprietor Mike Richards dies

He was a vivid presence who made a difference through his Bolivia store renowned for its “Worms and Coffee.”

Mike Richards, longtime operator of Midway Trading Post at 3296 Southport-Supply Road (N.C. 211) next to Midway Road, died June 21 at 70.

“Nobody expected it,” Richards’ wife Carole said. “He was playing golf the day before he went to the hospital.”

Richards had been in the hospital seven days before he died.
