The highlight of Frederich's was their automated doughnut machine - as fast at they came off the conveyer belt people would snap those hot, tasty sinkers up. My dad and I would sit in the car eating half the bag while mom shopped.

The Norland Frederich's later became a Food Fair, Pantry Pride, Sun Supermarket and possibly either a Wooley's or Malone & Hyde as what once was the Food Fair/Pantry Pride chain de-evolved over the years.

Nice to see a post from Walter Frederich's granddaughter. He was very active in the old North Dade Chamber of Commerce, according to literature I had once acquired from the mid-to-late 1940s.

I got one for ya!! I was in Shell City with my sister and two year old nephew about 1968. I remember seeing Muhammad Ali shopping there!!! I guess he saw my excitement at seeing him, then Cassius Clay. I will never forget that he pinched my cheeks and said to my baby nephew "hey boy, you wanna be a boxer like me"?. He was so warm and friendly. Love him always!

I lived on 193rd Terrace from 1958 to 1963. I remember a blind man with a tin cup in front of the Frederich's store on 183rd Street. Do you have a picture of that store or any other store in that shopping mall?

I attended what was called Jr. High at Norland. Every week my mom would stop off on the way home at the Frederichs nearby. I remember liking the store because it was more than just a grocery store. Funny how a grocery store would stir many great memories.

Robert, thank you for posting your comments. I would love to hear more of your memories of growing up down here so I can post them on this site. Older people are passing away and their memories need to be written down and posted for others to read and appreciate what it was like to live in Miami way back when. Please take the time to type out your memories and send them to me at
- my hosting site now has restrictions on how long comments can be under the photos but I can post volumes of words in a gallery by itself like I did for others on this site. Thank you for your consideration.
