What Happened To The Neighborhood Market In Cheyenne, Wyoming?

Chuck Geiger/Townsquare Media

Remember the neighborhood grocery store where you could buy what you needed without having to travel a distance?

I grew up in San Diego and we had chain markets even in the 60′s, but have lived all over the U.S. where neighborhoods had small markets with butcher shops, food, sundries and fresh fruit and vegetables. This sign hangs over an apartment in Cheyenne. I don’t know the history of the location, but I can bet it was a neighborhood market at one time. Feel free to correct me or tell me the story on the Facebook comment page.

These small markets are gone in all but small towns where they still serve in some cases as the mainstay of the retail community. The box stores and chain groceries have driven these small markets out of business.
