More memories of Coomer's Feed Store

Earlier: Comments re photo 77063 Coomers Store How many years ago

By Richard Phelps

I have been enjoying the comments on Coomer's Feed Store. I have a few things to add about the stories.

The 1928 opening to of Columbia Motors is interesting as well. When we took in the entire building into our funeral home in 1987, I remember the 1928 being in the center of the front of the building, depicting the construction date. (It was hidden behind the Coomer Feed Store sign). It is now behind the front porch awning.

One of my stupidest mistakes was in the cleaning out of the building up in the the attic of the building. Stupid for a JUNK-MONGER LIKE I AM!!!

In bins were OLD BUT BRAND NEW, UNUSED sales materials for Chevrolet cars and trucks. All thru the 1930, 1940, 1950's. Boxes of them. We took a pickup load to the dump.

This was long before the internet and world wide web made it easy to be in touch with antique car enthusiasts around the world. If I had only saved a couple of boxes full till later, they would have been highly collectible.
