It's lunch time for these folks in a Cape Girardeau store.
We don't know where G.D. Fronabarger took the picture, but it was probably in the early 1960s.
Jim Rapp says it was W.T. Grant about 1963.
The comment below by kcincapeg is in agreement.
This Southeast Missourian, June 12, 1973 story mentions a lunch and soft drinks service:
The W.T. Grant Co. store in Town Plaza was one of the original businesses when the shopping center was opened, and it has remained the largest in retail area with the exception of the Sears facility, which came later.
Opening in August, 1960, the store features soft lines of goods, carried in self-service type displays. Clothing of all types for all members of the family are carried, along with cosmetics, household goods, pets and pet supplies.
Customers, report the management, have come from all over the area -- Farmington to St. Marys, the Bootheel and southern Illinois. Also featured is a line of candies, lunch and soft drinks service and a range of garden supplies, in season.
The store here is one of 1,200 the company operates throughout the nation.
