Re: Your Corner Market - Western Market

Growing up on 46th ave between Judah and Kirkam, the Market was on 46th and Judah. We called it "Art's" as that was the name we knew the owner by. At the age of 5 my mother had me go and buy milk once, 5 years old going down the block and crossing the street! I won't let my 10 year old go to the mailbox by himself these days! He was a great man and his wife who later joined him in the store was lovely. I spent many pennies on those big grape gum balls. It is still there and I believe it is Western Market, but oh so not the same.
