Mallory Bros. Grocery and Feed Stores
Some employees at the stores were Sam Huff, Bill Bruner, Haskell Mallory, Virgil Padgett, and Reese Chrietzberg.
Ralston Purina products were carried at the feed store and the south side of the building facing the railroad was painted solid with the red and white checkerboards, the logo of Ralston Purina.
The store yearly entered a wagon in the Armistice Day Parade decorated with sacks of feed, lots of American Flags, and decorated with red and white checkerboards. Eugene Mallory died in 1931 at the age of 36 and very shortly thereafter Claude closed the stores.
