Country Boy Market with Saw Dust on the Floor

~
Do you remember the Country Boys Market with its wooden floors? Walter Smiths was the place to go for clothes on the Fulton Mall. Penny Candy had great blacklight posters and don't forget Whitie's Pet Store on Blackstone. What vintage retail do you remember growing up in Fresno?

Country Boy Market with Saw Dust on the Floor

Postby Scrooloose » Fri Nov 14, 2014 3:28 pm

The old Country Boy market on Blackstone and ? The one that the irrigation canal ran behind and the two streets merged to become Blackstone some where between Olive and McKinnley (help anyone?) This was on the southeast corner of Fresno and McKinley. I used to live in the Carmen Cul de sac back when I was little. ( just south of McKinley and Fresno. ) I used to buy candy there. Back then you could walk to the store by yourself when you were 5. I always go. "Watch out and stay away from the ditch"
