An era ended over the weekend, but very few likely noticed.
Located in Adamsville, Rhode Island, the store has been run by seven generations of the same family.
"This was the local business," said 21-year-old Jonah Waite, who inherited Gray's from his father, Grayton, after the latter passed away last month. "This was the place that you would come to get your groceries, and there wasn't any real other competition."
Sadly, times have changed, and with many options to choose from, customers don't visit as often as they used to. In fact, prior to closing, the store serviced only about ten patrons a day.
However, since the announcement went out that the store was shuttering, some 100 people have been stopping by each day to reminisce.
The store's last day was yesterday — Grayton Waite's birthday.
