Ernie's Pizza was Young Bros. TV and Appliance store. Next to it in the Carlson house front yard was Steve's Taxi.

It is ashame that a lot of these stores do not make it in Kings Park. I think if the land lords of these builds keep up with their buildings and keep them clean and appealing to the town I thinkmore people would keep coming to them. After awhile you really do not want to eat or shop at a dirty store . It grosses people out. I love some of the new stores that fixed their buildings and place up. It looks great and it makes kings Park Shine!! The other stores and buildings should follow. We need to be careful . Our town is starting to get more and more rif raf. We need to start thinking of how to make our town appealing and clean it up.....

Too much traffic and no place to park on Main Street. Mom&Pop stores can't cope with the Malls anymore.
