Remembering Rhode Island's
Good Ol' Days
Riverside had a store if a remember correctly from my youth. Wasn`t the Grants department store located in the same plaza?
There was a Big G on Smioth Street in Smith Hill too... Had a Laundromat attached to it... Right across the street from Domestic Oil and A. Watt & Sons...
There was a Big G store on Newport Ave in East Prov it closed in the mid 70s
Tower Hill Rd (Rt 1) in North Kingstown as well. It is now a Dave's Marketplace.
one in Coventry where Benny's now resides. If you look to left of the parking lot you can see where the Big G self serve gas station was. That is in the day of under 40 cent gas a gallon.
I worked at the store on Market St. in Warren in the late 60's..It's now some sort of remedial school.
Big G in Warwick was on Post Road, where Wal-Mart is now. Misspent much of my youth in the Warwick Plaza.
