the scene above shows Rhode Island’s founder Roger Williams being
greeted by friendly Narragansett Indians who said “What Cheer, Netop?”
to Williams. in half-old-English and half-Narragansett, this means “Hi Neighbor”
(later becoming the slogan for Rhode Island brewery Narragansett Beer!)

our shop What Cheer? opened in 1999 with “What Cheer, Netop?”
as the inspiration for our store’s name. this phrase has long been celebrated
in Rhode Island and has been used in naming many different businesses
and things, including being used by the City of Providence, and also by a
marching band called the What Cheer? Brigade (which began in 2005).
