Mrs. Jack inside the new all self-serve store. Visitors to the Holiday Lake development brought much new business to the store.
A new store was built in 1964, nine inches higher than any previous flood. Despite this precaution, the store flooded twice with three inches of water.
The Chelsea centennial was the same year the new store was built. Mr. Jack ground a ton of beef for the celebration.
