Olson’s Grocery Then and Now

Olson’s Grocery on Yates was one of at least seven little corner stores nestled in Robbinsdale’s sleepy neighborhoods. Back before anybody ever heard of Hy-Vee, Rainbow, or Red Owl these were the places Mom sent the kids to pick up a bottle of aspirin or a pack of cigarettes. In the last couple decades most of these groceries have been converted to single family homes.
