Another old piece of Kingston is disappearing. There was a grocery store in this location for nearly 100 years, close to 70 of them run by the Bennett family, until the Loblaws corporation bought it out. Last year, it built a new store out by the 401, in fast food alley, next to a Canadian Tire store, and closed this one.
My mom shopped here every two weeks, when Dad got paid. Sometimes she would bring one of us kids, but usually not :-) From roughly 1979-1999, I delivered magazines here, to Bennetts, and then to the No Frills which replaced it.
I am a ten minute walk from here, (about six blocks) and I moved to my current apartment three months before it closed. Now I bike to the Food Basics, nine blocks further away.
