Mother would bring us by in the afternoons for RC Colas. Mallie Hobbs would give us the peanuts to go with them. Oh how I wish I could go just one more time…” Dakota native Cindy Jones Hauesler, 2012

    I remember riding Bill Lee’s School bus and him stopping by in the afternoons to let us get snacks which was penny candy and penny cookies in those days . Those were the good ole days when life was so very simple…or it seemed !!! Dakota Native Sheila Jones Myers

    This store remind me of so many general stores I use to visit when I was a youth. Most were in Dooly County, Lily mostly. Like Cindy I would get either a RC cola, grape Nehi or a Suncrest strawberry. They were usually accompanied by peanuts, peanut butter crackers or an Ike & Mike. Ike 7 Mike came in two sheets of gingerbread with a pink glaze on each piece. I thought it would have gone better with milk, but sodas were good too.
