Business Scene for the week of 9/19/2014100TH BIRTHDAY PARTY: SAVE THE DATE
Kelly Tan and her family at Young’s Market in downtown Taylorsville are in the planning stages for a huge birthday party Oct. 18. Seems the store’s National cash register turned 100 years old this year and they’re throwing it a party! That’s right, a party for a cash register — and why not? The antiquecash register has earned it working day in and day out for a century at this historic store, where it continues to be the focal point of attention for both visitors and locals alike as it reliably rings up sale after sale. The old adage “they just don’t make things the way they used to” certainly fits here. No doubt here will be plenty of Indian Valley old-timers at the party to share a story or two.Kelly, besides being a successful storekeeper, is also a talented and seasoned caterer. She said there’s going to be lots of free food and beverages for all to enjoy along with live music and a contest for the best birthday cake.
