Gibson’s. Bill’s $ Store. Piggly Wiggly. King’s Bowling Alley. Storm’s Burgers. Barker’s Furniture.
Mention these names to any longtime Covite and they’ll tell you the names all have one thing in common: they once had homes in Cove Terrace Shopping Center, now a fixture in the city for five decades.
Tomorrow from 2-6 p.m., the businesses at Cove Terrace Shopping Center are holding a party to celebrate the shopping center’s 50 years of being home to many businesses throughout the years and looking forward to the years to come.
At the July gathering of The Network, Quine Associates property manager Jennie Snelling, the leasing agent for Cove Terrace Shopping Center, announced that the center was planning an October event with a 1960’s theme.
Since then, Cove Terrace business owners have gotten on board with the celebration, with drawings for gift cards from Cove Terrace businesses
