Ok, this is to see who can remember the Old Stores that were in Oceana years ago!! I can remember when the Oceana Department Store was called Beans Dept. Store, before it became the Oceana Dept. Store. I remember when Montgomery Wards was across from where Speedway is now in Oceana. Can anyone else remember any of the older stores that used to be in Oceana or Pineville??? Just thought this might be a different Topic, or one that we can remininse about..lol

I remember LA Joe and Hecks. I reckon they ain't that old though. What about Murphy's in Mullens? The Freezer in Pineville? Remember Stanley's Steakhouse in Oceana? Lord I'm gettin' old.

It sure was. They had a good pet department. I used to get stuff for my dogs there.
Anybody remember Crystals in Oceana? What about the Jesse Drive Inn, that used to be a good place to eat many years ago. And I bet I've got one no one on here remembers..Shoe City in Oceana!

I sure remember Buddy's. And Deskins too. I always thought they had a better variety of stuff than Fas-Check or Sav A Lot does now. I remember the Canteen real well. Everybody loved to go there and eat once in a while. I remember when Arby's was in Pineville there across from John W. Eye is now. I heard they closed cause of sewer problems or something. I never did go in there and eat. Maybe that was a good thing.

Buddy's was a great store.. where Rite Aide is now right?... Thomas grocery store, where the car wash is in Pineville.. NO maybe where the bank is now.. one or the other..Pappy Jakes service station where the family court and fire deparment are today in Pineville, plus the Independent Herald office in almost the same place.... Stevens clothing store on main street, the liquor store (where Video flicks used to be and the home health equipment thing is now, also Crew's store, Pine Theatre, Holloway drug where you could get real fountain cokes and milkshakes, the Rose Hotel, Piggy Wiggly,(where the Happy Trails is today)... The "dugout" pool room below Crew's store, basically where Ronda's pharmacy is today.. Talk about a trip down memory lane... Of course I don't personally remember any of these places, my mother used to tell me about them :)

Oh yea.. there used to be two theatres in Oceana.. One was the Midway and the other was the what?.. I think the Midway burned down but not sure...

IGA used to be there where Fas Check is. Pic-Pac was in Jesse. Remember when the Dollar Store was there on main street? And Rite-Aid was beside of it. I remember the restaurant where Dr. Lao's used to be but I can't remember the name. I remember when the skating rink used to show movies and also when the library used to be up where the health dept is now.

Don't let us forget Blankenship's store ,which is parking lot for B.O.E. building now.The first time I ever came to Pineville ,we ate at Pinnacle Drive INN and stopped at Blankenship's.Places to live were hard to find.I remember there weren't many homes on Welch-Pineville Road or Bearhole.
