When I was pre-school - first grade, my grandmother lived at the diagonal opposite corner of this block. We loved to walk around the corner to this store for comic books, candy and a soft drink, spending a nickle on each. That would have been about 1954. We always used that side door because we walked up Elm St. to reach it. At the time we lived in a duplex on Hopkins St. which was a dead end where the school now sits.
Thanks for the comment Rik! It looks like it was called "Harry's Grocery" in the 1950s, looking at the city directories. Is that how you remember it?
I was not aware of the name. Just interested in the contents at the time.
1931: Ernest B. Harris, Grocer.
