Blast from the Past: The Final Days of Ralph's Supermarket

This past weekend I was back home in Western Pennsylvania for Mother's Day. While visiting family I took swing by my college campus and my old haunts from school. I drove by the site of a local supermarket that closed while I was a reporter for my campus TV station.

Before Ralph's Supermarket closed I interviewed Ralph himself about his long career in the food business and how he feels about leaving the community. Check out my report on the final days of Ralph's Supermarket circa 2004.

My amateur reporting aside, cute and touching story, right? Just thought I'd share!
