I am not sure if mural is the right word but local artist Nancy Derby Davidson created a painting for the sign on Cooper’s Foods on W. 7th street near St. Clair Avenue. The outside of the store and the entry was inside the store have been repainted to coordinate with the sign.
It all looks wonderful and there was a kind of grand opening thing on Saturday. Dave Thune from the St. Paul city council showed up as did former mayor George Latimer.
For many of us the store has been our source of food for decades. It is very much a neighborhood store and sometimes a place to catch up on the local gossip. I guess it is more like a neighborhood institution.
