Tammy Marion My very 1st job was at Jim’s Restaurant as a waitress in the summer of 1977.They obviously rebuilt after this fire. I remember my hourly wage being something like 2 bucks an hour or almost that lol..

Jo-Anne Dowdall-Brown It was Jim’s for a long time. We took over the Supertest Coffee shop and gas bar in 1965 and I believe it was Jim’s then.
