Thanks for the link. It would be great if you could post pictures of Palm Heights through the years. Ask the membership to dig through the garages and attics for those old pics. Remember this is "Gone but Not Forgotten".

I grew up on theo and nogalitos. I remember, before their was a Mcdonalds, their was a ice/grocery house attached to a barber shop. (which I think moved to theo/IH35..where the old stop and go used to be.)

Also the little strip mall, that housed Surma's bakery...my mother used to buy donuts...umm donuts, the best....on the way to Grabner Elm.....anyway housed a Winns, Rios hair cut and a Eckherts and the other end. I think a shoe/boot repair shop was in there at some point. Can't forget the G.W. Juniors across the street.

I loved Surma's Bakery . My mother would always take us there to get cakes and things. Great Eclairs! What time frame are you remembering these places?

Around 1983 to 1989.

If memory serves me correct, I think they closed around Fall of '89. I remember they made little Batman cookies, to celebrate the movie, during the summer. Then I remember walking to the store later that year, to get the Batman cookies, and it was closed, for good.

They were there along time . I'm sure the earlier days we went were in the 50's. On up into the 60's.

Those in particular I wouldn't know. But all the G.w. Jrs closed long before the others I'm sure. Eckard's so hard to remember because of the name changes and such. Winn's may have been early 80's. G.W.'s was probably closed late 70's. Eckards was likely around to late 80's or early 90's. My memory just not that good . I have to relate things to other things or events to recall sometimes.
