First opened in 1910 by Chris Christoffersen. This was the first store in Minden of its type, selling dry goods, clothing, shoes, and cameras. Later, the store was operated by Lin Blondin and Ken Watson. In time, it became known as Town and Country under the management of Tom and Norma Andrews. The C.O.D. Garage purchased the building in 1975, creating Pioneer Motor Parts.

  1. @gvranchosbill - You can follow the link below for more details, but the short version is you need to be the admin of the marker listing. Once you are the admin of the listing you can upload pictures. If you do not wish to be the admin of the marker listing, you can email the pictures to us at hello@historicalmarkerproject.com.
