It was so nice having a small department store downtown in the 1970's. Roses filled the bill when it came to replenishing the stock in your apartment, house, or dorm room .... from shampoo to frying pans, lamps to welcome mats, all the basic necessities were there. Malls were all the rage as the decade moved forward, but it was a shame that these types of stores had to suffer as a result. I'd still shop there today if it were back again.
Today the building is known as the Town Centre, directly across from the downtown Post Office, and houses a variety of smaller stores. The photo shows another example of cars being able to park right on Main Street. I miss that too !!!!
