At one time in Kewanee there were as many as 65 grocery stores in Kewanee. That comes from research done by our good friend, Dave Clark for the latest edition of Kewanee Back When. it seems everyone of a certain age in Kewanee has a memory about one of these stores from their childhood where the store and its proprietor weren’t just a business, they were a big part of their neighborhood. On this edition of Kewanee Back When, Dave Clark and Sean Kernan run through the wide and varied histories of Kewanee and its grocery stores.
