Shopping in the Neighborhood: Neenah’s History of Mom and Pop Grocery Stores

  • Neenah Public Library 240 East Wisconsin Avenue Neenah, WI, 54956 United States (map)

Join the Neenah Historical Society as we present a program in our “Making a Hometown” series on the interesting history of “mom and pop” grocery stores throughout Neenah. Many of us still have memories of small local grocers where we would buy penny candy on our way home from school, and a time when purchasing groceries on credit was still possible. Presented by Neenah Historical Society volunteers Becky Heidke-Kwiatkowski and JoEllen Wollangk, you’ll be amazed to find out just how many of these small grocers were scattered throughout neighborhoods in Neenah.
