I fondly remember when it was Milgram’s.
Great store! Janie helped advertise!

True story:

One day a guy named Artie went there in 1975 or so. He dropped a dollar bill and two old ladies went to get it first. The three got in a fight and the guy strangled both women.

The Star almost won a Pulitzer for their headline:

“Artichokes 2 for 1 dollar at Milgram’s”.
