Description

Joe's Store or 3rd and K Market was one of the Icon at Arthur Cappers. It was the store everyone frequent when they did not go to the Safeway. At night it was a place were all the singers in the neighborhood would meet up and do-whoop until the late night,early morning. I used to live across the street from the store,and my bedroom window was facing the store. I used to here Leon Lilly,John Lilly,Lorenzo Ross,Sunny Clark,my next door neighbor Derek to name a few. It was a very busy part of the neighborhood in the summertime. During the early 70's the store was owned by Mr. Goodman,Then Joe Reid took over after the riots. Then came Oriental Joe who took over after Joe Reid. Today the store is there.
