Wanda, thank you again for posting your memories. Do you think it became Magnolia Sundries after you knew it as "Mom & Pop's Drugstore" or before you knew it as that name? Yes, Opa-locka has seriously gone downhill over the years and the city government is now deep in debt to the county and to vendors who are owed money.

I remember this a Mom & Pop's Drugstore, the ice cream cones were 5 cents, one scoop. I didn't remember it as the Magnolia Sundries shop. Such a whole some memory of days gone by. Wen to visit a few years back and my heart was broken to see how my childhood town full of fantasy was like abandoned, unkept and actually appeared more like a slum. Even the Opa Locka Elementary School had chain link fencing… so sad.

God, yes. That's been a haven for drugs and hookers and anything else illegal since the first black man walked into Opa locka.
