Are you talking about Graber's? It was also called Rephan's at one time. There was a Western Auto in that area too, I think. I also remember Austin's Sporting Goods, The Squire Shop, Tezzie Smith's, Thomas Hardware. Was there also another place to eat up by the Dognsuds? It was called Johnson's or somwthing like that.

If you want a family business open one or shut up. stop living in the past. How can you have a good input on something that does not even matter?

The last ten years businesses have shut down more than kept open.
Why didn't ARI come here? Why did Hart's shut down? Why did the old Hospital shut down? Why did Basler shut down? Why did the Shoe factory shut down?
