I noticed they have torn down the old Thrifty Supermarket and cleaned off the lot. It had become an eyesore. Walt Perry Realty has a sign up there. It would make a good location for business. There is a big lot with plenty of room for a building and parking galore. Maybe a developer will buy it and put up a strip mall. The ABC store could be one of the tennents. Norma and I could reopen the Ice Cream parlor and a lady with an antique store is looking to relocate to Wingate. Some of you probably remember the Smith family that owned Thrifty in both Monroe and Wingate. The store they built in Wingate was as nice and well stocked as any in the county at the time. After it closed in the late 1980s it went downhill fast.

Not sure this is Doc, but if you are, where did you hide to catch shop lifters when you worked at Thrifty's ?

Doc's first wife was one of John Eudy's daughters. I sure do miss old John. John's widow still lives just outside Marshville. She's a nice lady getting up in years. Doc and his kids look out for her.

I miss John Adam too, in my eyes he was one of my heroes and was very good to me. I first met Doc when I was around five years old; he too has always been very kind to me, set a good example through his community service and is a good friend to have. Both of Doc's kids are cut from good stock and you can sure tell their Daddy raised them right.

ok enough of that nostalgia crap. Are they going to build the ABC store on the old Thrifty property or not?

Chris, I don't think they have sold the lot. I believe the bank still owns the property and paid for the building to be demolished. I agree with the others that it would seem to be the ideal place to build an ABC store. I've heard it said that the town ABC board would have to lease space for the store. If they can get someone to build the building they would sign a long term lease I'm sure. It sounds like a win-win for investors and the town to me!

It's now a parking lot for 18 wheelers visiting the Hos in the trailers. I passed by there last night and there were 4 or 5 parked and a big Peterbuilt reefer was waiting for traffic to clear so he could get in there. One of the truckers knocked the For Sale sign down but it is back up now.
