I currently have a copy of a 5-page list of grocery stores, hand-written that is very roughly done and has some blank spots. It is quite amazing the number of grocery stores that have risen and fallen during the times of Miles City. But like I said I have stumbled upon some blank spots and I'm trying to refine this list. If I'm not mistaken the Piggly Wiggly was located on the northeast corner of Eighth and Main Street, according to the Centennial Roundup the store of Miles & Ulmer moved into this building in 1937. I have a date of 1886 by Piggly Wiggly (possibly the year it was established), what year did this store close its doors? Also I believe there was a store located on the corner of Haynes Avenue and Leighton Boulevard, does anyone know what the name of this store was? Was there any distinctive association between the Red Owl and Piggly Wiggly? And last but not least....I have C.J. Wagenbreth written down as the owner of the Montana Market (est. 1915??) located at 716 Main. Now I also have C.J. Wagenbreth written down for another store (unknown) possibly est. in 1909 with an unknown location....any ideas?
