Answer to Last Month
Ted Hetrick had an appliance store and electric ship in this building. The West Snyder Pharmacy and Shirk Flowers were two other enterprises which operated in this building.
Going back to loafing benches, add Kauffman’s Meat Market to the list. They had two, one on each side of the store entrance, in the original place of business. We thank Janet Kauffman for this information.
