Last week we shared this photo with you and asked you to share your favourite things about Huntsville’s original Wimpey’s:
Here’s what people had to say on our Facebook page, and on the “If You Grew Up In Huntsville, You’ll Remember…” page — thanks to Ruby Truax for sharing it there.
Sharon Norman: I worked at the original Wimpey’s. Favourite was the clam chowder.
Andre Wahl: Ice Cream!
Carol Earl: I worked at the original Wimpey’s. It was all based on the characters in Popeye. You had brutus burgers, sweet pea etc. This new Wimpy’s isn’t like that, however it’s amazing that it’s going where the old Wimpey’s was!
Bonnie Hickey: Ice cream
Sue Zilney: mmmm mmm burgers and ice cream
Michele Lariviere: I used to work there as a teenager. I started with scooping ice cream and then serving burgers. The owners wanted to promote me to assistant manager but I was moving to Tillsonburg so I couldn’t accept the position. But lots of good memories.
And several people wanted to know when the new Wimpy’s Diner, which will be in the same location, will be open. We don’t have the answer to that question, but we’ll be sure to share when we know!
