Hackensack History / Re: Old Candy stores
« on: November 13, 2017, 08:51:17 AM »
      I remember Breslow's Luncheonette like it was yesterday.  I believe that my Grandparents Morris and Rose rented the middle store back around 1928.  There was a grocery store and a beauty parlor in the other two stores.  When the grocery store went out, my grandparents bought the building and knocked out the wall between the 2 stores and made M. Breslow and Sons the way I had remembered it.  My father Irv and my Uncle Dave ran the store for over 50 years.  My twin brother Gary and I and our older brother Charles worked there after school for years.  We would come in early on Saturday to fold the newspapers.  I also remember another kid Sal "Tubby" Garofalo that worked early in the morning folding newspapers and did tasks around the store.  We would work behind the counter cooking whatever was on the menu.  One of my favorites was the Taylor Ham and eggs.  Tey sold just about everything that you could possibly need.  We had candy, Bordens Ice Cream, Stationary, comic books, toys, greeting cards and cigarettes & cigars.
