Remembers a White Cash Market
Comments re photo 39514 Downtown Mystery What does the fading sign sayMarsha Walker writes:
Ed, I seem to remember the name, White Cash Market, but it doesn't fit that location. Was there a grocery store by that name on Burkesville St., first block off the square, located on the right? -Marsha WalkerThanks. There was indeed a White Cash Market in the location on Burkesville ST you describe. It stood where the Baptist Church Parking lot is today.
The store was owned by R.R. "Pete" Walker and Dagwood Gore. Earlier, they owned a store by the same name at what is now the Cafe on the Square, at 212 Public Square, Columbia, KY, but I don't remember anyone ever saying it was located in the Russell Building. Maybe someone else will know. Thanks for recalling that store.
When White Cash Market was on the Square, Columbia had three downtown supermarkets: White Cash, Triangle (J.D. Harper) where Best Buy Clothes is located today; and Kroger, which was in the building now occuplied by Edward D. Jones and Barger Insurance Agency. The other side half - don't remember which was which - housed Marshall's Variety Store. -EW
