When I was a kid in the 50's, there were two stores in close proximity in Claycomo. One was White Front and the other was called Lorenzo's. Lorenzo's was at the east end of the Foxwoods Center.The problem I'm having is that nobody else seems to remember that store but me. Please, can anyone else remember Lorenzos???

Of course I remember Lorenzo's! Very friendly people there and great produce. Do you remember Izzy and Jake over at White Front? How about Monteil's close to Vivion and Antioch? When It closed Western Auto moved in, then another auto parts chain came in, still there. It used to have a domelike roof before it was closed in by the present facade.
The Sun Fresh used to be a Safeway (with a high standing green neon display spelling out "Safeway", you could see it from a long way off.)Then it became a Food Barn. A&P had a store on Vivion, that changed to different owners ending up an Apple Mart but now is a ghost town as is the rest of that strip center. There's more that I can't recall...
