Memories:  Woods and Connor had a wonderful store in the pioneer style of things in bulk transferred by brown paper bagsful or in quart/pint jars (if the item was liquid); candy was in the bulk and usually a penny would buy a piece of candy.  Bacon was sold by the ‘side’ and sliced in bulks of the customer’s demand.  These were courteous, respectful people and they gave that kind of service.  fb
