Call it progress or the sign of the times, but a locally owned neighbourhood store that was once a corner stone in the west end of the city came tumbling down today.
Brookfield market was the “go to” corner store for thousands of residents in the area of Roosevelt Ave , Second Line West , and Borden Ave for well over 80 years.
The store itself has been closed for sometime, it was recently up for sale with the house on the same property.
As with most communities the locally owned corner stores have all but vanished due to more chain convenience stores moving into town.
Many will remember visiting the store for staples like bread and milk along with milkshakes, bluebird bakery donuts and so much more. Another piece of Sault history gone but the memories remain.
