Isn't it against the law to open someone else’s mail?

I was never at this particular but I have been to several that are very similar. I imagine this store was absolutely nothing like Walmart. The employees/owners made a decent living, had good working conditions, and the products were high quality, Made in the U.S.A. brands. Nothing like Walmart at all!

OldHickory - I think you are referring to Myer's General Store (Albrecht's General Store back in the 80's). It is located further out SR 26 just before Wingett Run; I used to go on the canoe runs there also in the late 90's & early 00's. Biehl's Store is a little less than 10 miles out SR 26 from the intersection of Greene & Acme Streets; just before Moss Run. It's a little brown building just off the left side of the road with a Mail Pouch barn on the other side of the road acrossed the stream. Regardless, both stores were awesome in their day. There was another store as well in Bloomfield at the intersection of SR 26 & SR 260. I think it may have been named Schaeffer's.

Double cola was a local soda. Made at The Crystal Ice Co. On Marietta's Westside. And it was a favorite of mine too. Loved their grape soda too.

My sons remember going there with their granddad when they were little. They must have had the best pop around according to some of the post I've read. That was the first thing my son mentioned when telling him about it being closed.

For awhile there you could rent canoes and they would take you up three or so miles and drop you off then you could canoe back down to the store. we did that several times. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed that

I went to Biehls store at least once a week to get a bottle of Double Cola. Find memories of the place. Would love to see it rejeuvenated for poker runs, weekends, fall foliage,etc. I understand that Dick and Martha are older now. Just don't burn it down.

Biehl's store is a landmark out SR 26. Thanks for the memories Dick & Martha. Maybe the oil & gas boom will increase traffic and a little demand in the area in the future. It'd be great to see the store rejuvenated a bit; maybe Dick & Martha, their children and grandchildren could re-open the doors even if only for cold cuts, snacks and drinks...just a little place to stop in for a break and a little atmosphere. I'd like my children to be able to enjoy these type of family businesses (those with a little history and a good story) like I did when I was a kid.
