Times Are Changing

Bob’s Quality “Crackhouse” Market finally bit the dust. I see little evidence of any historic or noteworthy portions of the building needing to be saved. It is being replaced by a Family Dollar, which is being embraced by the community that currently has no place to shop in walking distance–which is the only way many people around here can get anywhere.

    Where the newly-built Family Dollar is now (southeast corner of N. Florissant and St. Louis Avenues) was an A&P grocery store when I lived in the neighborhood from the mid-1950s to the early 1970s. The parking lot of the Family Dollar is where a Super Sandwich shop (a diner) was located during the same time frame.
