Picturing the Past 120: Another old grocery storePosted Tuesday, July 26, 2011, at 3:40 PM

Remember this store? Dennis' IGA Foodliner was roughly where the northwest edge of today's Roses parking lot is, around the Madison Street-Evans Street intersection. I remember being inside that store many times. It was torn down around the mid-1980s when the shopping center was built.
Those old enough to remember the 1970s can remember when what's now the shopping center was covered with houses -- as well as across the street, lining Madison Street, at what is now the newer main entrance into the Celebration Grounds.
Around that same intersection, I can still visually remember, at least a little bit, a small almost "country store" type of building in what's now the parking lot of the rent-to-own firm at Madison and Evans. Anyone remember who ran that store?
