The latest posting at the Duluth Public Library’s [email protected] blog is a look at a few of the lost corner grocery stores of Duluth.
A few more I remember are 8th Street Market on West 8th Street, Glader's Grocery on Raleigh Street, and West Side Market on West 3rd Street. I also remember one called Don's, which was somewhere in the neighborhood of A & Dubs.
I'm glad that I'm old enough to have had a couple old corner store holdouts when I was a kid in the 80s. Chet's on East Ninth Street. Tony's Market on the corner of North Eighth Avenue East & Seventh Street. Hillside Market on North 10th Avenue West & Fourth Street. The Hillside & Tony's market were converted to homes. Chet's had become 8th Street Video on 9th, & is now some sort of coffee place, it is nice to see that at least one remains a business of sorts. Whenever I walk or drive around town I always spot the places that were once stores, I wonder what they were called, what they sold, when did they close their doors.
Loved that article. Thanks for the post.
The sign is still up at the old 8th Street Market location. It is shown in the banner above, from PDD's rotation.
Above is a more recent shot of the old 8th Street Market building. It's been boarded up for a while, following a suspected case of arson.
Below is a shot from inside Glader's Grocery from a story in the News Tribune Attic. That store didn't meet its demise until about ten years ago.
