FENNVILLE AREA HISTORY
FROM A JUKE BOX
Dickinson then moved his hardware into the Weaver store, from the north side. In 1948, King bought the old Jackson Auto Livery, five stores east.       "We have eleven departments," King told a reporter from American Druggist Magazine, "and each one is equipped to do a real selling job. Our departments include prescription, vitamin, baby needs, proprietaries, cosmetics, gift, animal care, tobacco, and of course, a very good fountain with 16 stools with 4 booths."
 
    King sold the business in 1950 to V. V. Tabor of Middleville. Hugh Simpson,
            of Battle Creek, was the store manager.
  
            Tabor sold it in 1956 to Stanley Alexander.
             In 1969 Stanley sold the Fennville Store to his son Ross. 
             In 1971 the SODA FOUNTAIN was removed.

 In the early 1920's the first refrigerated fountain in the state if Michigan was installed.  In 1924 Duncan was given the chance to buy the store but did not have the money.   James Bale of the "Fennville Fruit Exchange", came to the rescue.       Weaver ran the store for more than a decade and sold it to Lorenzo Crane, who also worked in the store. Crane did not do well. In a few rears it reverted to Weaver who sold it to Charles G. King of Kalamazoo.
