715 Henderson

Lawrence Scardino built this grocery store in 1940.  It was Scardino's Food Shop/Store until 1956; then until 1973 it was DeStefano's Grocery.  It is still a neighborhood store.  Lawrence Scardino's family lived behind the store at 711 Henderson.  His father Joseph Scardino had operated a grocery store one block away at 2202 Kane.
