"Okay, when I was real little, they had three stores operating. The one on the right if you, they're all on one side of the street, if you're facing the stores. The one on the right was a little ole grocery store and general store. Mr. Foster Smith was in that building and then the middle store, Mr. Welcome Malone had it and it had a big ole basement up under it and the one on the left, Mr. Ben Jerden had a store."
