    Local Grocery Ed's Way

    Gotta love a local grocery store....Family owned...in the middle of the block...All shopping is on a first name basis. Ed and his family literally have been a life savers for a neighborhood. I always tell them, If they sold beer and wine, I'd never have to leave the block. This is my shout out to a great local treasure.

      That’s the sign of a bygone era
      it’s refreshing to see a family owned market

        Very nice. I remember when I was young, we had a butcher at our local market, “Palms Market”. He knew all the ladies and called them by their married names. “Hello Mrs. Richardson, what can I get for you today”. Loved going in there and looking at the meats. Would always get a piece of beef jerky to gnaw on while shopping with mom.

        Thanks for rekindling that fond memory for me.

          Very nice. We need to have more of these mom and pop stores and do away with the big box ones.

            I wish I had something like this. When I first bought my house there was a little corner store two blocks away. Not big enough to carry everything you needed, but a little better than a 7-11. They closed up not long after we moved to the neighborhood (I swear I use deodorant). Now I have to go a couple of miles for groceries. I frequent mom and pop hardware stores for this reason.
