Poston's Store Building - R.I.P. 1947-2008

This is the old Poston's Store building as the bulldozers prepared to move in on Tuesday July 29, 2008.

This is a Kingsport Times story from 1953 about Upper Circle (a.k.a. Bristol Circle) businesses.

This is a Poston's grocery ad from 1954.

Do you know what the original name of Poston's was? It was Circle Cash Market, built by my parents James and Marie Catron and opened on 3/15/46. I was 1 and my brother was 2. We lived on Miller Street then moved into the apartment below. My mom ran the store and my dad drove for Mason Dixon, then they sold it to the Poston's and we moved to Lynn Garden. I have the original handbill and newspaper ad announcing the opening and a picture of my brother and I in front of the store.
