"A cornerstone of the neighborhood..."

When Mocol's Supermarket opened its doors on the corner of Broad and Lafayette in Mankato, Woodrow Wilson was in the White House and World War I was still going strong.  The year was 1917. 

91 years later, we loaned George Mocol some audio equipment so he could interview friends, family, and customers.  Dave Engen then sat down with George and two of his brothers to chat more about one of Mankato's oldest third places.
