General Store Gone Modern That's That's McCain's Home Supply e ' ' '·· "."I .TTT" 1".' - * " * Probably the closest thing to the old time general store in Greene county is McCain's Home Supply in Churdan. But you'll find no cracker barrel or potbellied potbellied coal stove there today. McCain's is a store as modern as they come, serving today's homemaker with every needed item from shoe laces to a complete Y o u n g s t o w n kitchen. Main departments of the store are groceries, fresh meats, appliances, work .clothes and shoes, and general hardware. The store location dates back to 1882 when Andrew J. Dudley built a store there and went into the hardware and implement business. Dudley rebuilt after a 1915 fire and finally sold the business in 1953 to Chet McCain, then up just of Seela McCain Hardware in Jefferson. Jefferson. McCain's associates include Cleo Pollard, grocery and market manager- Frances Carey, cashier; Mrs. McCain, part-time clerk; and Larry McCain, store clerk during summer vacation. Chet tries to run the kind of he thinks his customers want and constantly trying to improve the of service and quality. Some of the outstanding names to be found on shelves and displayed on his floor are Youngstown kitchens, K e l v i n ranges and refrigerators, Sylvania TV, Tappan and Roper gas ranges, freezers, DuoTherm and Super Flame oil heaters, Wolverine work shoes, Lennox furnaces and plumbing, and Ball Band rubber footwear.
