Anyone remember this store that used to be in Eunice. My unce, William G. Reese just died and he used to manage that store. I grew up in Colfax,La.....although I donot like there any longer. We had a Reese's store there too. Just wondering.

Reese's was the store for everything. I remember the smell of the old wood floors, the toys, school supplies, everything you needed could be found in Reese's. Still have a wooden top and a set of jacks purchased from Reese's. Also remember the windows and doors open--before AC was.....

My parents lived next door to Mr. Bill and Mrs. Arnette for years. I went to his funeral. I will surely miss him. And yes, I do remembers Reese's (the store).

I grew up in Eunice and Reese's was just a few blocks from our house. Went to school with your cousins Bob and Bill.

As a young child I grew up next door or shall I say in back of the Reeses home. I remember their mother being a nurse was either sleeping or at work. Most of our days were spent at Mrs. Tyson's home or mine.We really had a lot of fun with Paige, the twins were too young and also Devonne. We later moved into another neighborhood so contact was lost. Many memories are remembered and I loved Reese's 5 and 10. But other than than that I loved being a playmate and loved their grandmother, Mr. Bill and of course Mrs. Arnette Reese.

I never visited that store, but I would have been honored to do so. My father, William G. Reese, passed on in 2006. He would have been delighted to meet his doppleganger (by the way, what does the 'G' stand for? Dad's and mine is George).

I only remember Ms Doris as a manager. She gave me a striped canvas shopping basket when the store closed. Remember those? We still have the chalk board that my grandmother Seale had in her kitchen to write her Johnson Grocery list...it still has the Reese's price tag on it! The Easter bunny sure was busy at Reese' there must have been 500 Easter baskets for sale. My grandparents had a charge account there LOL
