60 Years of Sweet Memories for Country Store
LOCUST TOWNSHIP-- For the past 60 years, folks in Numidia have had one thing they could count on. Inside Palachick's General Store, Peg is behind the counter. Peg Palachick, 90, and her late husband, Joseph, moved from Shenendoah and bought the store near Catwissa back in 1953. That was the same year Mary Ellen Beaver and her husband moved to town and bought a farm. She says, over the years, the two women have developed a close friendship. She says," She loves all the people and she does everything she can to help people."
