I thought it was time for another stroll down memory lane. When I was a youngster living in downtown Winlock, I remember the Shoe Store which was owned by Mr. Legat, he fixed all your shoes and always greeted you with a smile. Then there was The Butcher shop which was owned by Mr. Prigmore and Mr. Inman, this was a truly old fashioned butcher shop and they had the best cuts available. And last but not least was the Safeway Grocery store (which was located where the city hall is now). Winlock was a bustling downtown!!
