It seems that we have been all up and down the Valley with this one. But, yesterday Penny Trafford emailed me. She is highly knowledgeable with local history and here is what she said. I think a trip to Galetta is in store..:)

 

Hi Linda, about the store everyone thought was in Braeside, the store did look very familiar to me from my childhood. I could recall being in the car with my Dad and driving past it. My cousin answered the mystery tonight of it’s location. This store was in Galetta. My Dad grew up in Galetta. The next info is from my cousin Phyllis Proulx. In Galetta there was Kenny Smith across from him was the Wallace’s the store was across from Wallace’s after you cross the tracks from Arnprior on the left before you turn to go to Mohrs Corners-where they used to go to school.

Thank you Penny!
