Freudenberg Grocery Long Operated In North Chattanooga

Sunday, March 11, 2018

The Freudenberg Grocery long operated on North Market Street in North Chattanooga.

 

However, it closed in the mid 1940s due to A&P and Krogers moving up the street. 

 

Earl Freudenberg, longtime local radio broadcaster, said his great-grandfather, George A. Freudenberg, moved to North Chattanooga in the early 1900s and opened the store.

 

Earl's grandfather, E.C. Freudenberg, was operating it when it closed.

Refuting Racism

In an opinion piece, 5/18/18, Rev. Josh Woodrow referred to me and my fellow School Board member, Joe Smith, as racists and white supremacists because we spoke out against busing.

Roy Exum: ‘Don’t Invent, Discover!’
