Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)

Under construction at 6500 Evergreen Way was new building that would house the new No. 2 store of Al's Auto Supply, which opened in 1958 at 5329 Evergreen Way. Al Wexler opened the first store in 1956 at Everett and Lombard avenues. Now there were five outlets.

Shoe fashions county girls would be wearing next year were being shown at Chester Beard's Store on Colby Avenue. Wearing the shoes were Mitzi Sand and Aleta Sunde, Everett High; Connie Mattson and Shirley Geary, Cascade; Valerie Turk, Marysville, and Virginia Bartelheimer, Snohomish.

25 years ago (1988)

Effective May 1, brothers Xon and Marc Baker were no longer in the ambulance business. They had sold the business to Shannon Ambulance. The Baker name had been synonymous with the emergency ambulance system for decades. Their parents, Ken and Edith Baker, had been the business since immediately after World War II.

Herbal Magick had opened in the Everett Public Market, 2804 Grand Ave. It carried an assortment of herbs, spices and teas, crystal gems, crystal balls, semi-precious stones, books, incense and more. Jamie Gerondakis and Ward Pancoast were the owners.
