Exploring Photos with the NOTL Museum: MB Foods
Exploring photos with the Niagara-on-the-Lake Museum.

Today the site of a massage therapy business and art gallery at 1547 Niagara Stone Rd. in Virgil, this building started as the Virgil Locker Service in 1950, providing cold storage for local farmers and a small grocery. In 1957, it was named MB Foods and, under the ownership of the Bogusat family, the store expanded to become one of the largest independent grocers in the region. It provided many specialty products, such as their popular German sausage and baked goods. In 2005, it was bought out by Valu-mart (Loblaws) and a new building was built next door.
