Memories of the Past #5 -
On the corner of Central Avenue and 1st to the East of Main there is a big brick building (across from the parking lot now that used to be the hotel) there was a discount women’s store back in the early 60's, I don't remember the name of it. Then it was a Joseph’s hairstyling college for a good number of years. Now it sits empty.
At the turn of the century this building was home to the Grand Forks Grocery Co. . In the early 1900’s it was purchased by some local men and became the Minot Grocery co. which eventually evolved into Nash Finch.
