|Ivanhoe Supermarket; March 25th 9:15 pm Laurenn and I
were driving up Woodward when suddenly before us stood an illuminated
pillar of smoke. I followed it down to it's source - flashing lights and
a solitary fire truck.
The Ivanhoe Supermarket was ablaze....
|A sad day indeed! My friend Lowell
Boileau informs me that it was build more than Sixty
years ago, this was an Albert Kahn building; it was the first
supermarket in Michigan and in its heyday it sported black glass and
stainless steel, making all the more of a pity that this building should
burn down. Right down from the street from us, the Ivanhoe had provided
us with groceries for as long as I've lived in Highland Park. Goodbye
Ivanhoe....I'm gonna miss ya!
