J.C. Lichliter and Co.


 In 1911 Levi Lichliter opted to move his business to the Elk Lick Supply building on the northwest corner of Grant and Ord Street.  This building was originally built by the Merchant's Coal Company and was used as a company store.  Some new features of the store included; hardwood floors and counter tops as well as under counter bins which tilted towards the clerk (giving better access to the dry goods which were sold).  Items such as dried beans, peas, macaroni and rice were scooped from the bins, placed into a paper sack and weighed.  Levi also sold flour, fancy groceries and maple products.  Being one of the first business establishments in the county, Lichliter's were the recipients of the first shipment of flour and bananas.
The J.C. Lichliter and Co . building was renovated in 1949.  Later owners were Blair Buckel and Mable McKenzie.  In 1994 a fire severely damaged the building which was torn down following the tornado.
