Great shot. Oh, the memories. My father worked for High Low Foods from 1939 to 1969 when he retired. I also put in a decade with the firm.
Pre-1967 was the best of times in Chicago.
Thanks for publishing the photo.
I worked at the High Low at 79th and Jeffery from about 1950 to 1953 while going to South Shore. It was a great store and the people were the best. I still remember it with fondness. We worked hard, but had fun doing it.
I am replying for my father Ed Jesernik who worked at High Low Foods from 1947 to 1976. He started as a stock boy at 559 E 79th st, and worked in all High Low stores. He has a garage full of high low photos, ads, etc.
iwent shopping with my mother every Saturday at the High-Low food store. I would always get a fresh red apple from the produce guy. what a nice place to shop! my mother even had the groceries delivered to our house, because it would have a hassle bringing groceries home on the 79th street bus. What a great place to live and shop in the 1960’s in south shore! I’ll never forget the good times i had!
