As a young Turlock youngster, I was running around on the 100 block West Main while parents were making money cooking chow mein and tossing choy suey on the plates. I could see the smokey bar when my sister and I were making a pastry run for my parents.
In the late 50's-60's, West Main Street was alive. People would come to town for parades, events, etc. It was alive and Scotty was very much the place to be for businessmen.
I wish Downtown was like that now.
I miss Haulk's Drug Store I used to eat lunch at the fountain they had. The Mercantile was nice to go and get clothes at. I worked at Youngdale's in HS and until I was about 20 something. I loved the way they had Customers come in and purchase Wedding gifts we would wrap them for free and even deliver them to the Reception. This kind of Customer Service is long gone.
Things have changed so much.
