Hillcrest Market Burns Bad – Tom Harpel has the story, and the pics.
Damn, Hillcrest is gone. That kinda blows. There are two other minimarts on that side of the hill, but Hillcrest was the largest. It was the one right across from Starbucks, at the odd five-way intersection of Olive and a bunch of other streets.
In 1999, Clark Humphrey noted that the building was originally one of the initial wave of Safeway stores, which first came to town in 1923.
