Before the super markets and mega shopping areas came to be, we had small stores all over our little town.
The first little grocery I was aware of was this one. I remember it as Walden's.
It is located across the street south
of Roosevelt Grade School in Hutchinson, KS. We bought penny candy and bubble gum there.
I don't remember buying any drinks. There was plenty of water inside the school at the water fountains. Now, of course, it is remodeled into a home.
