Welcome to the 188 Slop & Shop. How can I help you?

Michelle Kerr is a trader found at the 188 Trading Post in 2281.


Polite to a fault, Michelle and her father, Samuel, were originally Primm traders. A month ago, the NCRCF prison break forced them to take to the road and set up the 188 Trading Post at the confluence of Highways 95 and 93.[1] The volume of traffic from New California and troop movements between the Dam and Army positions near New Vegas have guaranteed them a steady supply of customers, though Michelle is concerned the Legion raids might affect that in time.[2]

Michelle and her father are never tied down to one place and will move out whenever trouble shows its head or if business begins to dry up, both with Primm and if Caesar's Legion begins to threaten the Mojave more inward past the Colorado River.[3][4]

Michelle Kerr appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.


  1. The Courier: "Who are you?"
    Michelle Kerr: "Name's Michelle. My Dad and me run this store. His name's Samuel. I take the day shift and he takes nights. We came here about a month ago, when Primm went to hell on account of the prison break north of there. Found a bin to call home and set up shop."
    (Michelle Kerr's dialogue)
  2. The Courier: "Why'd you settle in this dump?"
    Michelle Kerr: "There's more to the 188 than meets the eye. Troops move back and forth on 93 all the time, and 95 is how NCR folks come and go from Vegas. No shortage of customers... so long as Legion raids south of here don't get worse, anyways."
    (Michelle Kerr's dialogue)
  3. The Courier: "What do you know about Legion raids?"
    Michelle Kerr: "Not much. I hear some folks got killed down by Nelson... or was it Novac? I don't know. If they come up this way, me and dad'll go someplace else."
    (Michelle Kerr's dialogue)
  4. The Courier: "Primm's safe now. I took care of those prisoners."
    Michelle Kerr: "That's nice. I suspect we'll stick around here, though. Business has been good."
