I grew up on a street that had a 'corner store' on both ends. One on the north, one on the south.
However, it was the south store we visited. Why?
1. They had scissors to cut the ends off our freezie's
2. They had the best variety of chips (heck, they once had a Fries & Gravy flavour)
I could remember Pat's Variety Store like it was yesterday. Where the candies were placed, how he promoted the goods (at my eye level) and...how he sometimes forgave a penny or two if I was short some money.
