Mt. Pleasant Pioneer Relic Home is happy to announce that it has been given a “Johansen Brothers Grocery” sign that once hung in the Johansen Grocery at 30 West Main. The sign was donated by Sam “Coyote” Madsen, Steve Poulson, Ted Poulson, and Peggy Thompson in memory of Alan “Doc” Johansen, their friend and brother. Alan passed away June 30, 2009 at the age of 53. Alan was the son of Shirley Otto Johansen who owned and operated Johansen Grocery for many years.
The sign will hang in the Relic Home over the pantry door. The small pantry will soon become a small old-fashioned general store, featuring candy, dry goods, postcards and historical trivia. The Mt. Pleasant Pioneer Historical Association wish to thank Sam Madsen and the Poulsen Family for this unique and memorable donation.
