Convenience Stores / Corner Stores
Cumberland Farms – Located at corner of High St & Ashland St.
Unknown Corner Store – Located at Name Unknown, Corner of Broad & Merrimac St opposite Towle Silversmiths.
Fowler’s Meat Market – Located at the corner of High St and Myrtle Ave. The owner’s son took his own life if my memory is correct. I remember going there a few times with friends and seeing the son behind the meat counter at the rear of the store. He seemed to be a quiet type.
J.J. Newberry – Located on Pleasant St. More Info

North Shore Grain Company aka Penny Candy Store – Located on Merrimac St near Leary’s Package Store. The place was a grain feed store, but also sold penny candy. We used to call it the Cockroach Corner, due to the extreme smell of grain feed and the cluttered conditions inside. Behind the counter to the left as you entered was the location of all the penny candy. She would, the owner, be wearing a red smock as she pulled out a wax sandwich bag to fill it with candy. In those days no one seemed to care that she would pet the cat and proceed to touch the candy immediately afterwards. It was a magical time… Gone forever.
