I had heard that there used to be a mortuary on the site where smart and final is now and there was an underground tunnel from it to the hospital. What was the name of the mortuary and when was it open?

Thompson Smart and Final

The site of the current Smart and Final on Thompson was a Sears store when I was a child....early 70's.... Not sure if it was a mortuary before that, or what.

Yes,it was Sears before S&F. I grew up near there and remember when the building was built. It was a vacant lot before that.

I remember my parents taking me to Sears to buy my school clothes in the early 1960s.

For the sake of accuracy, just adding that Smart n Final is on Main St., not Thompson.
