In a cramped storage area (above) manager Mark McNally shows the old cheese containers that have long been used to store screws and washers. Look closely and you can read the Kraft company name, as well as the type of cheese -- American, pimento, brick. The front portion of the store reflects T & T's age. Lining the back walls are hundreds of small wooden drawers containing electrical and plumbing fittings. Pails, pans and garbage containers are stored on shelves. Below, customer Haul Bauer stops briefly to chat while employee Regis Baker (an employee since Oct. 10, 1979 -- he knows the exact date) rings up a purchase. The store remains in the Tumas family. Now it is owned by Stanley's son, Michael.
