I loved the Giant Store. When I was a kid I would get 1.00 a week for an allowance. My sisters and I would walk there from home over the lord overpass ( former Highland girl). We would spend the day shopping.. We each had our own dollar..Man that went a long way back then..

Remember "King's" at the foot of John Street, at the mills ? Sorry, the only dentist I remember was the Lowell school dentist "Dr. Ritter" across from LHS on Kirk St.
