Blackwell Grocery, Mansfield

It’s not very often that I find a place like this. Blackwell Grocery, though, is the real deal. It’s a grocery store located in a hundred-year-old building in a small downtown, and it’s without pretense. Today, most places like this are made to look old and sell specialty items that are more geared to tourists than normal folk. Not so Blackwell Grocery. For over thirty years they’ve been a staple in Mansfield but they plan on building in a new location soon.

I don’t know when I’ve seen hand-written signs in a grocery store. And there were just four aisles, if I recall correctly.

They don’t have as much as the big box stores, but they probably have anything you might need.
