Small businesses play an important role in communities, and throughout St. Marys' history there have been a variety of businesses that have come and gone that area residents still recall fondly. The Daily Press recently asked users on Facebook which former small businesses are most memorable to them.
One business that was mentioned often was Auman's Store, which was located on Benedict Street.
