Jax Pax Grocery

401 Haywood Road

One of three locations along Haywood Road and eight in Asheville, Jax Pax Grocery #8 occupied 401 Haywood Road from 1932-1950. This interior photo shows Jax Pax clerks, Walter Ruby, center front, with Mr. Harry Brown just past him, and in the meat department on the right side, Mr. Forrest Morgan and Eddie Evans.

After Jax Pax, the space was occupied by Little Super Market for a short time before becoming home to Chakales Hosiery Co. Sewing Room [1953-1955], followed by White & Williams Sheet Metal [1956-1966].
