CHAPMAN THRIFTEE
2001 Messanie

This was a fun challenge figuring this one out
Susan Angell sent me via email 2 photos wanting to know what the name of the grocery store was in the background of the 2 photos
In 1947-1948, Susan's mother, Emma Overton, took the photos of her friends standing at an unknown location
Susan stated that her mother and the girls attended Central High School so that narrowed the field down
After researching several possible locations, John Fulmer figured out the location where Susan's mother was standing when taking these photos
The girls are standing on the southwest corner of Warsaw and Messanie Street
The wall in the background is the old St Peter & Paul church's wall
The small wall on the right side belongs to a yard at that location
It was determined the store in the background was located at 20th & Messanie
Owen Henson Hy-Klas #14 is listed in the 1942 city directory with that address
I received an email from Dale Holaday, son of the Holadays along with 3 photos
Anderson (Andy) and Marie Holaday purchased the store from the Hensons in 1944
The Holaday family managed the business until 1957 when they sold it to the Chapmans
In 1957 it became Chapman Thriftee
Following Mr Chapman's death in 1967, Mrs Chapman sold the building and it was subsequently torn down
The old East Side Human Resource Center building now stands at that location
East Side Human Resource Center has moved to 18th & Slyvanie

Check out all of those Black Diamond Watermelons!
Those were the good ole days for sure
Thomas Markets were those neighborhood markets that you loved to shop at
They were a small version of the large grocery stores
In the mid '30's, E. C. Thomas began selling fresh fruit and vegetables throughout Midwest Missouri off the back of his truck
A few years later, he opened up Thomas Fruit Market on St Joseph Avenue, Thomas Market remained here for many years
3323 St Joseph Avenue, as of 2011 it was a Dollar General
4913 Lake Avenue, as of 2011 it was Sack N' Save (in 2013 it closed)
205 W Main, Savannah MO, as of 2011 it was Green Hills Supermarket
In future years, E. C. Thomas's sons, Jim, Roy and Ernie Thomas operated 4 Thomas Markets (I seem to be missing a 4th store)
Jim Thomas's children, Don, Mark, Mike, Carl and Kay assisted in operating the stores
Sadly, the Thomas Market on St Joseph Avenue closed many years ago and is currently a Dollar General Store




THOMAS MARKET
