Edmonds Food Store and Freezer Lockers stood at the southwest corner of Massachusetts and 19th Streets from 1926 to 1985. Our grandfather, Joseph R. Edmonds, started the business as a.young man in McLouth and later built Edmonds Food Store in Lawrence on Massachusetts at 14th Street. Our dad, Norman S. Edmonds, took over the business from his.father in 1940, remodeled and added a Fountain Service and Ice Cream Store with Curb Service. Norman's three sons, Steve, Mark and Joe grew up stocking shelves and delivering groceries. In good times and bad, we always ate well. Submitted by Stephen Norman Edmond
