Murphy's Restaurant
This was Murphy's Restaurant, located inside the G.C. Murphy and Co. store on the upper level of the Greengate Mall. In its heyday, this restaurant served wholesome, affordable meals to hundreds of people who would converge upon the counter after a long day of shopping. The restaurant closed soon before the store itself was shuttered in 1994.

I unfortunately was the stockman who's job it was to tear the restaurant down and the building that all the potting soil and stuff, miracle grow and such was stored under this picture really brings back memories, I can remember ordering a Burger from Twila first thing in the morning and hiding in the maintenance room beside the pay bathrooms to eat it and wash it down with a large coke lol

I worked as a stockman at g.c. Murphy in the greengate mall for quite a few years and don't mind saying I miss that place and all the people I worked with, it was like a big family you don't find that much anymore. Since then Ive lost track of all those great people and find my self remembering them quite often :-).

they had the best chocolate milk i have ever tasted. the k-mart next door(well so to speak) was number 2 and the generic "major something or other pizza" was number 3. all within 5 min of each other. And my dad's mechanic was behind the mall past that little underpass. memories.....

The clock on the wall had a minute hand that would skip each time around when it reached the 12. I sat at that counter many times with my grandparents enjoying an early morning breakfast before the store opened.
