53 years ago today,I started to work for Taystee Bread.I have seen a lot of changes in Blytheville since that day.I remember being talk about the changes that were coming in the future.Here are some of the predictions. Small stores would close and the bread salesmen would turn out to be delivery people.Bread would be DOLLAR a loaf.This has all come to pass except bread didn`t stop at a DOllAR.You can still find some at that price .We used to pick "stale up" on the fourth day and now I find some bread still on the shelf thirteen days old from the date of baking.Things sure have changed,especially bread and Blytheville.

53 years ago there were plenty of small country stores like Lute's and Ramey's on hwy61, West's on Ruddle rd., and more. Seems like every corner in the county had a place to buy bread, cokes, and medicines. I have a picture of Hoody Doody that came from a loaf of Wonder bread in the 50's that I found while remodeling my house. Happy Anniversary!!

I actually started work on Feb. 11th but put down when I was hired permantely ,after my probationary period.Yes I remember all the stores you mentioned.I retired from Wonder Bread in July of 1995.There used to be a lot of good people around Blytheville and especially in the retail business.Sure miss a lot of the good friends and the good people that were around this part of the country.

"Day old" bread they used to sell cheap? Month old bread don't mold sometimes now. Apples look the same in the refrigerator for months. GMO's and irradation for you there.):
