Advertising Chattanooga Businesses

Today, a blast from the past—some old advertising giveaways from Chattanooga, Ohio, businesses.

I enjoy collecting these items and they sure bring back a lot of memories. Memories of some businesses that were once in Chatt—Fisher Hardware, Wendel Brothers Motor Sales, Heffner’s Grocery, and the Chatt Home Restaurant.

A tear-off shopping list from Heffner’s Grocery:

Most of the advertising items I have are from Fisher Hardware. Fisher’s had a nice hardware and appliance store and they sold John Deere implements as well.

The Chatt Restaurant and Bar is the only one of these businesses that is still open today.

I hope these items bring back some pleasant memories for you, too, and that you enjoy reminiscing about the bygone businesses in Chatt.

    Karen, I have a glass Norman Rockwell picture from Grandpa’s grocery store. It does not say anything about the store on the front but it has a label on the back. Remind me to send you a picture of it if we ever get moved into our house.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

      I would love to see it! Send me a photo of it and, if you don’t mind, I will add it to the post. I thought about his store but I don’t have any advertising items from it.
