My late father-in-law loved this store.

Jefferson Golden Dawn is a throwback to days of yore. A gentler time when grocers would offer their goods not only in a timely and affordable fashion, but with the care that once defined shopkeeping as an avocation.

Inside the place, one can find all sorts of edible goods, along with gear designed for hunting and fishing in the great outdoors. Over a frozen foods case, for example, there is a colorful display of rubber waders and fishing rods. Upstairs, there is a store-above-the-store, with firearms and other related bits of hardware.

JGD is the sort of food depot everyone in America used to have, until mega-sized chain operations conquered the market. If you're in the area, stop by for a bit of nostalgia, and friendly service.
