Blast From The Past

I go by this corner store fairly often and always look at it and wonder what it is like inside. The outside seems as if it could be from the 40s and all the old features and signs are still there. I'll have to go in one day. Our snow is all gone now.

I love places like this. You should go in are report back to us. Stores like this are so rare in big cities.

I like the looks of it too, and I'd be going in to check it out as well! It reminds me of the what they called the old corner store which is disappearing fast in neighborhoods these days.

I'd go inside just hoping I'd find old wood flooring.

Looks like one of those places you could get everything from a pint of milk to a set of drill bits Pat :) you'll have to investigate!

Here and there we have shops like this. They are a rare breed.

I thought it looked quite modern: you know, 1960s or something...

I would go in and wander about the store and ask permission to take photos inside. Neat looking place.

Karen said...

Oh yes, go in and take a look around!

We love visiting small stores like this, probably because we owned a corner store in England. Just going in and purchasing one small thing helps stores like this stay in business. I hope you get to go inside one day.

I love these little shops. I would go in and buy a bottle of water or an orange just for the fun of going!

These small, Mom and Pop grocery stores are jewels in a city. They have character and often bring life and vibrancy to a neighborhood. Please check it out and report back on your blog.

I like that it is still in business. Looks like you could find almost anything in there! I know you must be glad the snow is gone.

Do people live upstairs?

Brings back memories of when I was a kid in East York and the local corner store that was a hub for the neighbourhood.

Halcyon said...

I hope you'll report your findings back to us!

EG CameraGirl said...

Oh yes! Do check it out!

Nice little store.

RedPat said...

I think the people who run the store live upstairs. The entrance is on the side.

We had this kind of market when I was young, the corner markets now have bars over the windows. By the way our snow is NOT gone. Tom The Backroads Traveller
