This store was located in my neighborhood on Ashley Ave at Fishburne St. My grandmother sent me there many time to pick up grocery items for her when I was a child. My dad was good friends with Gus. One day years after my dad had passed away, I was driving down Ashley Ave and I noticed the wreath on the door, so I stopped and took a photo. Later I saw in the obituaries in the local newspaper that Gus had died. This painting is based on that photo.
