Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, February 10, 1973 Market will be rebuilt A fire inspector has narrowed the cause of the Value Vil lage blaze Tuesday to either a careless smoker or a faulty electrical appliance. Doug Kometz said the fire that destroyed the grocery store, bakery and pharmacy at 13th St and 6th Ave. S. likely started in the post office section of the pharmacy. Meanwhile, the company that owned the shopping complex, intends to rebuild as soon as possible. Gay Westwood, manager of Value Village Markets Ltd., said as soon as the corner site is cleared of debris, city building inspectors and others will be asked to determine whether Avhat remains of the structure can be rebuilt. "The plans are to rebuild as quickly as possible," said Mr. Westwood. "But I can't go into details until we see what this will involve." In the meantime, Mr. West-wood said Value Village customers will be informed by letter that bills and other business can be conducted through his home address - 2318 10th Ave. Mr. Westwood provided a history of the grocery business, saying it is among the oldest in the city. In 1926 the business was started by sisters named Stewart in the building on the east side of 13th St. now occupied by Stringham Realty. In 1928 Frank Hoefer bought the store and started a delivery system and charge accounts. There are currently about 1,-000 people with Value Village accounts. In April 1950, Mr. Hoefer built the store on the west corner which was destroyed Tuesday. Ian Wood went into partnership with Mr. Hoefer when the new building was completed and in 1961 following Mr. Hoe-fer's death, purchased the business. In 1967 with rennovations to the building, the name Value Village was adopted. On Feb. 7 -four years to the day of the fire -Mr. Wood died, leaving ownership of the property and building to bis wife.
