Back when I first moved to NW Florida in 1967, Grant's was one of the "Big 3"
department stores along with Gibson's & Gaylord's...all three were in Panama
City with the Grant's store on 15th Street in the Panama Plaza along with A&P
& SupeRx Drug Store.
There was also a "Grant City" (smaller version) which opened in nearby Marianna
in the mid-'70s - when the chain went under, that store converted to a Woolworth.
As mentioned in another post, Bradford House's "kiddy mascots" were Bucky &
Becky Bradford - still have one of the hand puppets with a menu printed on it
& the kids could get 99c meal deals. When the Panama City store closed, a
local businessman opened 2 or 3 restaurants with the "Bob's Bradford House" name,
but they only lasted for a few years.
