I think my mother mentioned a Wilma. My mom worked there up until I was born in 1960.

There was one on North Main St near Norman Avenue in the 50s and 60s. Hawks and I used to go there a lot! Back in the days of the mom and pop grocery stores.

There was one in the middle of Belmont till the mid 60's. I believe it was on the other side of the alley from the movie theatre. I used to go in there when I was a kid. It had a great soda fountain with a Wurlitzer 78 rpm jukebox and the booths were in a kinda circle around it with stools at the fountain itself. I remember in the old days they featured Molers Ice Cream and sometime around 60 or 61 changed to Gem City Ice Cream. They sold 45 RPM records, kites, and other cool toys. Too bad those days are gone.

Just thought I'd fix this while I was in here suffering with the site. :-)

The name of the company was Gallaher's.

Well then who was the J. Frank Gallaher with 52 stores? I can't see that they owned Revco as I thought that was based in Twinsburg which is near Cleveland.
