  1. I remember shopping Penn Street with my mom. Whitners and Pomeroys were my favorite stores as a child. I loved the Whitners basement cafeteria….it was delicious food especially the chocolate pudding which I dropped on the floor…by mistake of course. The restaurant cashier was at the bottom of the steps….I believe there was some kind of fountain with greenery. It was a treat for me in the 1950’s.

    1. I remember, too..as a teenager going to Whitners basement for a vanilla coke and french fries.
      Those were the good old days…could not afford anything else in Whitners but could afford this delicious snack.
