Have you got a story to tell or a picture to share about Coaldale stores?
For a few years now I’ve been writing articles about some of the stores I’ve frequented years ago in Coaldale. For a small town we had many more stores than younger residents could imagine. Many of them were the “Corner Store’ variety which usually attracted customers from a very close part of town. Others, like many along Philip Street, had a bigger draw. Most sold groceries, but others were clothing, jewelry, drugs, hardware, or variety types. Names like Vahovich, Schonberger, Daley, Ambrose, and Millen were well known by all.
I would love to hear from any of our group who would like to share what you remember or pictures you may have of these people and stores. You don’t have to make a production about sharing your thoughts. I’ll try to condense and incorporate anything you wish to pass along. All these places were unique and most of the owners were certainly characters in their own right.
Give it some thought and let me know what you have to share.
