There was also on the west side of 61 before the overpass: Big Steer restaurant, Griffs Burgers, Self serve car wash, Jack’s 76 gas station (approximately where Holiday is now), Standard gas station and an SA. I think there was a Phillips 66 at the intersection also. Later was Harry T. Sheldons bar & restaurant where Youth Service Bureau is. On the east side was the Highwayman restaurant attached to a Sinclair gas station, a Dairy store located slightly east of the Sinclair (80th ended there), south of Sinclair on Point Douglas was Belden Manufacturing. Where Rainbow is was a farm and heading south on Pt. Douglas was a National food store where the district center is. G Will Liquor center had an Applebaums supermarket as the anchor, Glenn Olson’s Cottage Grove shoe store, and where Norris is was the mall with Red Owl supermarket, Snyders drug store and a Gambles Dept. Store as well as Tom Moy’s, a Jewelry store and many others. Former CG Police Chief Bob Osman also had a book store in the “mall”. The current Rainbow location was a K-Mart for many years after Grants.
