We had an appetizing store where we'd choose pickles from a barrel. Average cost 3-5 cents.
It was located on Burnside Avenue next to Klein's hardware and a few doors down a bakery
(I forgot the name) but it was down from the corner of Grand Avenue, right on Burnside.

We also had King Cole shoemaker...he repaired shoes...you got a tiny booth with a
comfortable seat while you waited. The only black owned business on Burnside that I
know of.

If you're reading this "A Friend" ..... having a title instead of a name kind of sounds. weird.
Like you're hiding or something????
