Carl's Locker & Market Rebirth

I remember going there when I was a kid. Sometimes mom would make my brother, sister and me wait in the hot car while she went inside for a quick withdrawal. Other times we got to go inside with her. That was the coolest place in town.

I wish there was still a business like this here in Columbia. I didn't realize it at that time, but we were supporting local farmers and hunters. Maybe some business-minded folks around here would like to resurrect this type of community resource. I hope so.
