A picture a day from around the Roanoke, VA area.
Goodness 63 years, that's quite a good run for a business these days Tanya, let's hope it keeps going for many more!
...oh Tanya, I remember as a kid grocery stores like this, what a throw back! All that it needs is a coin-operated horse next to the Coke machine. That for stopping by.
Classic style grocery store with a unique name. Hope this store prospers in the future. Looks like your photo could have been taken in the 1950s.
That's one I'd never heard of before.
I've heard of nick-nacks but not Mick-or-Mack. I don't think 1953 was that long ago at all. I bought my first car that year - a 1937 Chevy!
So it started in Roanoke and stayed there, holding on despite Kroger and Food Lion. And this is the very last one. Strange name for sure, it really does look pitiful.
What a vintage sign. Good article, it mentioned S&H stamps, my mother used to collect them all those years ago.
My mom did too! I loved helping her and my grandma stick them in their books and then shop at the stamp store!
Looks like it hasn't changed at all since it was built. A beautiful snapshot of 1950's architecture.
Never heard of this one before. Very cool store!
I have never heard of this store, but the look of it reminds me of a five and dime.
That is a catchy name!
Nice color in that picture!
Never heard about Mick-or-Mack before... read the stoy to learn more about your past. Good that it is still open - I like such little grocery stores. Wish, we had one here nearby!
I never heard of this chain but it's sad to see it go by the wayside, like many others. Thanks for the photo and the link with the information.
Cute name for a shop!
Love it! What a great shop!
Hi! I'm so happy you've stopped by and always enjoy your comments :)
