When I photographed Matthews Store in Randles in 2010, it looked rundown, but it was still standing and you could see some goods lingering on the shelves. After I posted the photos in 2012, Susan O’Connell commented “I wanted to let you know that this is my grandfather’s store. …. It was like the Walmart of Randles.”
