Rocklins Grocery - Duluth

Rocklin's Grocery store was located in Duluth at 318 18th Avenue East. It was owned by Bill Rocklin. The Rocklin store was only a couple of blocks from Elmer Kaner's Grocery Store

The following information was courtesy of Robert Davis:
"I tried finding the house on the avenue that had been Bill's small 'corner' grocery on the ground floor, but the store is gone and so are the trees, so it's impossible to recognize the building anymore. In his later years, Bill still delivered groceries and charged a flat $100/mo to his customers, who didn't care if they got their money's worth. Bill and Flora Rocklin had a son Richard, who became a rabbi and served at Tifereth Israel for a short time; he had some bad luck."
