Tonawanda News — What are companies thinking? Why not tell the truth upfront? What kind of customer service are we getting?
Who is he?
Last week’s column included a photo of John Sullivan, a photo found in the street in the Town of Tonawand We are still searching for this young man’s identity.
Mike Addy, formerly of North Tonawanda and who many of us know from former Canal Fests, emailed to say the photo reminds him of a gentleman he met many years ago when they were both in the restaurant business.
“We met in my last year with Canal Fest and prior to us moving to North Carolina,” Mike said. “The man’s name was also John Sullivan and has remarkable likeness to the picture. He was no longer in the restaurant business, but was in the real estate business. I wish I could remember who he worked for, but as I get older my memory is getting less and less.
“I know this isn’t much information, but perhaps it might help in locating the John Sullivan I knew back then. ... Canal Fest is still very close to my heart.”
Thanks, Mike. You are the only one who responded to the photo. Hope we find out more about the “mystery man.”
It’s so sad to see Budwey’s store sold. It’s one of the few business staples in town. Think about how many we’ve lost: McCarthy’s Fruit Market, Wagenscheutz Hardware, Cramer Hardware, Berns’s Children’s Shop, Morrison’s, Parsons Drug Store, Bob Johnson’s Meats, O’Connor Toy Store, Zeffrey’s, Litzenberg Hat Shop (our favorite especially at Easter when all women and children wore hats,) Fowler Electric, Sugar Bowl, Nestor’s, Werkley’s Candy Store, Fezer’s Market and Saffer Jewelers.
