In August of 1966, Arnold "Jack" and Rosemary Shaffer
purchased from Mae and Blanche Miller & Ray Chivas Chivas Grocery, which had stood on this corner for more than 30 years with a barbershop on the 2nd floor. Whitlock Shoes occupied the building to the east during the 1960s. In 1969, Jack's expanded into the cabinet shop next door, doubling their space before moving uptown in 1973. The site became Siler's Sports in 1979, remaining that way for 36 years. Feel free to pull out at Riverview Park just ahead and walk across to friendly Jack's Family Grocery, still owned by the Shaffer family, for a cold drink and snacks.
