Upper Lakes Foods in Cloquet is celebrating their 50th anniversary of business and after meeting with the family and getting a tour of the facility I wondered how many people know the thought that actually goes into what they do to ensure the utmost freshest and timely delivery of food. It’s interesting to find out the timelines they have when food arrives and is stored to when it is placed on the truck for delivery. Pallets as high as the eye can see filled with product; freezers, refrigerators as big as whole rooms and bags of carrots and fresh produce that are incredibly huge.

Local Gas Station Goes Retro, Brings Back Memories Of Full Service

A local gas station company, ICO on London Road, announced that they will be offering full service fueling at their pumps week days from noon to 3p.  They use to be called gas jockeys or full service attendants.  When I was a child there was more gas stations with full service than self-serv.  They would pump your gas, wash your windshield, sometimes your headlights and check your oil. My mom always went to Harold's in Carlton because they came out and pumped gas for you.
