Picturing the Past 144: Mittwede's interiorPosted Tuesday, January 31, 2012, at 7:15 AM

Check out the checkout area of Mittwede's in Shelbyville, shown here in 1973 during a "grand opening" following a major remodeling. (The store had actually operated for years at that time).
Those were the pre-scanner days when each item had to be manually keyed into the cash register - no scanners or computerization here. Looks like all the bags were paper in those days. No plastic then.
How much longer did Mittwede's stay in business? I'm thinking it was gone by sometime in the late 1970s-early 1980s.
