There was at one time a snack bar or cafeteria in the Jupiter Store. It was located on the south side of the store as you entered. In the basement was a huge oak ice box or refrigerator used for storage. I was told if I could get the old oak icebox out of the store when Jupiter closed, I could have it… the icebox actually was bolted together and was easy to disassemble. The refrigeration unit was shot and some of the base had to be rebuilt. However the ice box was lost in the flood of 2011 .. I did save the front panel, which weighs about 200 pounds. Some day, I will use that in some fashion in my basement.
