Correction No. 1: Bob Weston called to say that he was not the manager of the A&P as I reported in my last column but manager of the old Grand Union market.
It was on South Second Street in the City of Fulton across from the phone company about where a strip mall takes up space today.
Bob worked there from 1962 to 1967. But after five years of long hours away from home and a young family, he decided to leave the grocery business behind.
As luck would have it, there was an opening to buy a franchise to sell Pepperidge Farms Bread and Thomas Muffins.
Ironically, his delivery truck route, from Mattydale to Mexico, gave Bob long hours as well. He was up before the crack of dawn until mid afternoon when his workday was done.
