Cupp Grocery - Morrellville

Cupp Grocery - Fairfield Avenue - Morrellville. Mr. Cupp, the founder, is third from the left. The others are unidentified. This picture was taken around 1905 or 1906. Mr. Cupp later built a chain of grocery stores in the area before they were taken over by the American Stores Co., with Mr. Cupp's son Paul, being an official of the local Acme headquarters. He rose in rank to become president of the whole Acme chain and later chairman of the board of directors. This building was destroyed by a fire around 1935. They rebuilt it on the same spot and the store was also known as Sky's Market in later years. The building is still there.
