Willimantic Cash Store (Kaplan's Market?)This photo had an inscription on the back saying “Kaplan’s Market” but our research could not find a market by that name. The sign leads us to think it was the Willimantic Cash Store which was located at 17 Union Street. Years later the building was owned by Dr. Arthur Girouard. The last store to be located in that building was Martin’s Home Appliances when the building was razed as part of the redevelopment program of the 70s. Pic of the Week September 12, 2013
