Someone — I think her name was Gloria — posted this picture of the Seaway Market on Facebook a few months back and asked if anyone remembered the place. I saved the image, but can’t find the Facebook post anymore.
Here’s the deal with the Seaway Market:
It was located at 7411 Grand Avenue, next to the Lake Superior Zoo and across the street from the Munger Inn. The photo above is dated August 1959, which is around the time it opened.
It was owned by Elmer A. Nordquist. Perhaps that’s him with his wife in the photo. In the early 1970s, Mrs. Frances L. Anderson was listed as owner of the market. By the mid-1970s it was no longer in business.
Today it’s the location of the Armor Fuel & Save.
