Once upon a time before The Granary, a health food store on Bridge Street operating since 1978 this address has been home to several grocery stores including C.W. Moore’s and Maynard Argue’s. The old photo shown with this article was taken circa 1919, shortly after Cal Moore purchased the store from Deachman and Weir.

This counter was removed in the 1980’s from the store and stored in a garage. Funds were raised to move the counter and you can see it now at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum.
