This WAS Coveys Grocery, located at Four Corners. Now it is an empty lot.
This was my Dads store, where I grew up and lived until I married in 1972.

This is The Era of Covey's Grocery. A little country store that was attached to their home. A home the raised two girls, 4 boys and two sets of twin boys for total of 10 children there. In addition to helping to raise or babysit many a grandchild. Including me! Nice story where they would let you run credit for your food, gas, kerosine. Or be a complete stranger and my grandfather would help you know you had an empty promise of paying it back.

The biggest thing that has changed is that the store is now gone --Nothing but an empty lot.

Lived next house on left up the road, toward Jonesville. Rode my bike to grocery to pick up snacks and things. Summer was great! Had lots of playmates. Before the Coveys owed this, there was a vacant lot on 22 that had a platform that allowed music and dancing every fri and sat nights. We could sit in our yard and listen

lived on mitt's rd from 1978 to know alway's at the store from cold cut's to BB.s
