Patronage Appreciated!


Nothing says Hog City like a sense of appreciation for everyday luxuries such as fresh food and dry goods. So Park Grocery in Wapella turns the dinner table a bit and appreciates its customers for their patronage in our newest advertisement from Wapella business.

Please continue to support Wapella enterprise.

Do any of you remember all the penny candy they had for sale? What a treat to go in and get some.

Point of reference: where was the Park Grocery? Who ran it? How many grocery stores did Hog City have at its apex?

Historically yours,

Park Grocery was owned and operated by Mr. and Mrs. O.B. Park and was located just across the alley west from the Wapella Tap. It was destroyed in the 1968 tornado. Mr. Park was at onetime Mayor of Wapella and also was the postmaster for a number of years. The post office was located in their store.
