Ok, this is to see who can remember the Old Stores that were in Oceana years ago!! I can remember when the Oceana Department Store was called Beans Dept. Store, before it became the Oceana Dept. Store. I remember when Montgomery Wards was across from where Speedway is now in Oceana. Can anyone else remember any of the older stores that used to be in Oceana or Pineville??? Just thought this might be a different Topic, or one that we can remininse about..lol

Here are some that I know about or have been told about from my aunt.

Hatifield's General Merchandise across from Uncle Tom's
Island Creek Stores, formerly General Stores where McDonald's is now.
Ritchie's Furniture where Oceana Dental Center is and was Burt Green's Economy Furniture before that.
Clearfork Hardware, original place is where the Met Life Insurance Agency is located and Oceana Surplus is now, later moving to the building that is now AT&T.
Manning's Super Market
Daniel's Dollar Store, was in the building that is now Nancy's Hair Salon and the J & B Flooring is now located.
These are just a few that I can remember her talking about.

I ask this on the Pinevill thread like this one, but didn't get any feedback... I remember a long long time ago Oceana had two movie theatres on main street...the "Midway" which burned up and another one... I have a brain block and cannot come up with it.. Does anyone know the name of the other theatre?
