It was great to see those old pics. To bad that Acorn had to rip down a piece of Shinglehouse history. I don't believe that expanding their business is going to keep them open any longer than what they would have with the smaller store. With the prices they charge and their food being Sucky they wont stay in here long anyway. I think this is only going to make more problems at this intersection than what it is worth.
Me just saying!!!

I love this sold for greed comments. My mother in law is ill and everyone had the SAME chance to buy this property. SO until you can say who you are.....shut up!

It is sad that it's gone. It was one of the oldest places in town. I can remember being small enough to sit on the sawdust bowling machine and thinking it was the greatest thing in the world. We never appreciate whats there until it's gone.

Shoulda ripped the old garage across the street by the river down.

Look at the pics. Every other building along the street is gone as well. Hard to expect any individual to keep a building when nobody else did. Don't forget that the building was built with profits in mind from the begining. Its not like the architecture was unique or special in any way. It was built for a profit and the owners got a profit, i hope. Congradulations.

My opinion is. If you guys wanted it saved you should have bought. Acorn beat you to the punch and I think if the owner can no longer carry the load she has every right to sell it at the best offer that arises!! Prayers to the owner and in hopes she pulls through her illness!!!

Sold for greed? I, too, once owned this property. I can say as a past owner that everyone who owned the property took the risk of buying it with the intention of making a profit. People don't buy businesses to fail or not make money. I congratulate Dave and Toni for making a great investment and selling at a profit.
