Bohack Supermarket

My artifact was a bread delivering box and a container of maraschino cherries. They were from Bohack Supermarket. Bohack was a supermarket created by  Henry C. Bohack. He brought over his uncle which is my great grandfather from Germany to help him run the store. The first store was opened in 1887 and closed in 1977, and was located in Brooklyn New York. If this store never opened then my great grandpa would’ve never came to America and our family would most likely not live in America.

Place(s): America, Germany, New York
Year: 1887
