Downtown Searcy Arkansas Safeway Store....a long time ago.

 Safeway StoreInside Safeway

 

Today we have wonderful photos loaned to me by the daughter of the first manager of Safeway in Searcy AR.  It was on one of the main streets of Searcy, right in the middle of downtown.  It's hard for us to imagine now that people went DOWNTOWN to shop for groceries.  Horrors!  Where'd they park?  How'd they push the carts to their car to load the groceries? 

She has also included a picture of the inside of the store!  Not a vast selection of groceries, was there?

And the most interesting thing of all could be the street showing in front of the stores.  Brick!  It looks like it would be the old original brick pavers that was later covered with asphalt.  The city thinks they might be able to get the asphalt off but sounds like a terribly hard job to me. 

Thank you Paula Windsor Thompson for loaning me the photos.

Sharon, the Searcy Sleuths would know the answer to this question probably.  Perhaps they will chime in.
