The Food Store, 103 S. Main St., celebrates 31 years on Main on Saturday, Oct. 29.
According to owners, the anniversary celebration features food sampling and a
variety of special offers for customers.
When owners, Jon and Sally Weaver Sommer and Hans and Linda Houshower,
renovated a vacant building on Main Street and opened a natural foods store
in 1985, the natural foods industry was just getting started.

Who needs a scary Halloween story when you can view a photo this scary. Imagine Pat and Richard Nixon in Bluffton during the 1979 (or 1980) Halloween parade. Accompanying the Nixons is Fred-in-Stein, who also frequents Bluffton at the end of each October.
Fred-in-Stein will be at the Bluffton Public Library tonight (Thursday, Oct. 27) taking photos of Halloweeners. Perhaps we'll see your photo later tonight on the Icon if you stop in at the library.
