Fran's Grocery Store, Ainslie and Bell, 1962

This little grocery is just around the corner from where my mom lived on Hermitage (near Ainslie) in 1962, the year this photo was taken. I'll have to ask her if she remembers it.

This was a bustling local store that sold penny candy, milk, cigarettes, and some other necessities.

Around 1965 it became "Jack's", (possibly Fran's husband?) then around 1975 Jack sold to "Tony" who lived above the liquor store on Lawrence ave. (Cutlers?)

Sometime in the 80's the DuLong family bought the building and converted it to a single family home.
