I haven't been to Rice's store in about 50 years, but understand they are still in business. My grandparents lived in the area. Had an aunt related to the Holtz's. I use to go in the store when I was there in the summertime visiting from FL asking if they had any Coke Cola's. They were always so kind and friendly. Laughed at my southern accent. My daughter stopped last Fall asking where the cemetary was as my Mother (Kathleen Whipple Griffith)is buried there. That's how I know they are still in business. I now live in MO now but remember those good folks.
God bless you all.

The store is not open any longer. It has not been open for years. It is now a residential home. Someone did try to open a florist at the location, but was unable to. In fact you can not even go to Bill's Big M anymore. The closest store is in Fayetteville or Chittenango. So I am not sure where your daughter stopped but it was not Rice's Store. I grew up in Kirkville and my family still lives there today. In fact right on the same street as the store was located some even right next door. It was a great place and I have many fond memories of Mr and Mrs Ford.
