I just read the article Thomas May wrote in this week's Herald - "Looking Back at Union Springs".
I enjoyed the article and it brought back many good memories. I want to add another grocery store, my grandfather Rube Reynolds' Grocery.
Not only did my grandfather sell groceries, he also had a wonderful selection of hand cut meat, dry goods, gas and oil, and feed for cows and pigs.
Next door to his store he had a little business we always called the Hamburger Stand where wonderful hamburgers and hot dogs and the best milkshakes you ever tasted were sold.
Grandpa's store was also the morning and afternoon school bus stop for kids in that area. The Hamburger Stand had a Rockolla for everyone's enjoyment.
The store was on South Prairie Street across the street from the Amoco Station, now Liberty. He had a thriving business in that store and many customers depended on it.
