The type of article I love to find on Wiki[edit]

As a kid in the 50's I often visited there with my father, a typical frugal Yankee. He said it was the best store in the area for what(ever) he needed, and had been going there for years. He apparently knew Spag, because I remember him saying 'You have a look around, I'm going to see Spag.' Part of that was because Spag did know where everything was, or could find it. It was not well designed for locating things as space was used for storage as well as display. It had very high, old-style shelves, floor to ceiling shelves. By the late 50's I wanted to go there, since it was the best (value for cost) place to go. At that time, I was particularly interested in fishing and still have several rods and reels bought there. 'Cheap' at that time tended to mean more 'value' rather than the more modern inference to 'quality'. CasualObserver'48 (talk) 09:55, 17 January 2008 (UTC)
