Sweetheart Market

I was so bummed when doing some research in North Syracuse, we passed by Sweetheart Corner on the southwest corner of Rt 11 and Taft Rd, and the only thing left is the sign!

I used to go grocery shopping at Sweetheart Market in the early ’80’s when I lived in North Syracuse for a couple of years, back when I refused to go to Wegmans except for the double coupons. I did a search on the Post-Standard archives website, and found it closed in July of 2003, due to loss of sales to the big chains.  Bummer! At least the sign remains there! But you won’t catch me going into this Rite-Aid store.  Change is not always good!
