My Drugstore Memories,
When I was going to Sowers elementary, when mom went to first shift at Boeing, she would give me lunch money to buy lunch and I would walk from school to the Drug Store and have a Cheese Burger at the lunch counter, best Cheese Burger in the world as far as I was concerned, lettuce, big ole slice of tomato, mustard, ketchup and really big meat patty, well done. Along with great french fries and a genuine cherry coke.
I frequented that Drug Store regularly, had a great magazine rack with Hot Rod, Car Craft and Rod & Custom Mags and a great toy section that stocked all the latest AMT Models. Can remember buying the 58 Pontiac Convertible and 58 Edsel Convertible kits there.
It was real convienient where I could go to the IGA store with a red wagon full of collected pop bottles from along the road and taking the money to buy a mag or model kit at the drug store.
