Willimantic Cash Store (Kaplan's Market?)This photo had an inscription on the back saying “Kaplan’s Market” but our research could not find a market by that name. The sign leads us to think it was the Willimantic Cash Store which was located at 17 Union Street. Years later the building was owned by Dr. Arthur Girouard. The last store to be located in that building was Martin’s Home Appliances when the building was razed as part of the redevelopment program of the 70s. Pic of the Week September 12, 2013

Pic of the Week - May 26, 2011
This building was at 29 Jackson St. It was both home and office to Dr.Charles H. Girard. Dr. Girard and his wife are pictured on the second floor porch. We could find no information at all about Perilli the Italian Grocer. The information I had came from handwritten notes found at the Chronicle. The notes indicated that the building in the Pic of the Week was replaced by a new building. We have another picture and will get that on the site. In the 50s, the building was occupied by the Girard Agency and, of course, the Wonder Bar Restaurant as well as a package store.
