#24. Spagnuolo's Confectionery Store


In December 1924, George Spagnuolo purchased the Andrew Novara Confectionery, changed its name, and delighted customers with candies, ice cream, soda fountain drinks, and fruits until the late 1970s. Here you could find the second refrigerated soda fountain installed in Michigan (1926) and the first Coca Cola machine in the village. In the photo, taken before December 1924, can be seen the jewelry store of H. T. Blank on the left, and Andrew Novara's Confectionery on the right.
