great pictures -- thank you for doing this.  I love the mom and pops too and I shop them when I can.

Some of my favorites are Carolina Lumber in Springfield (opened in early 1900s)

Mike can match any trim or make any door you need.

Paschal Brothers, Myrtle and King

and Brintons paint. 

Father and son.

Bob Brinton opened his paint store, I believe, on Bay Street and then moved to Park Street.  They have been mixing and selling paint since the 60s.

Great article!  Just in case anyone wanted to know their location, I went ahead and added the contact information for each of the businesses featured.

Harold's has some real quality meats. I still grab steaks from them all the time. But it seems like their prices have gone up abit higher than most. Even just a few years ago I could get a steak from them for the "On Sale" price at Publix, now its fairly even.
