Yes, Rivenburg's! Rivey's store was wonderful..we loved that they kept their Christmas lights up all year long on the front porch! No more corner stores in Herkimer, and that's a shame. What was the name of the small store that was right next door to Bills school? And what a shame about the state that place now, too.

Yes, Nowacki's--across from St. Joseph's. Remember when Herkimer had a dump, which was (I think) near where Creekside Courts is now?

I can remember the place..cannot remember if I ever went. What was on the site of EFK plaza before the plaza--does anyone remember? Plus wasn't the former Baby Boomers a bar called the Wonder Bar (or something like that)?
