That time when most of the Bars were for Sale

You will have to forgive me for this. I’m on Christmas Holidays and there is a Cheers marathon on.

Here is another banana that fell off of my research tree.

Way back in 1979 if you were in the market for a drinking establishment in the greater Grand Falls area you were in luck! The Car-Sans (Robin Hood Inn), The Hillview Inn (Kelly’s Pub), and the Oasis (the vacant lot by Leech Brook) were all on the market.

Anybody want to buy a bar?

I am only aware of one of these bar’s being sold because of the ad. I’m unsure if the Constables were able to sell the Oasis, Carrie LeMoine sold the Car-Sans to her daughter and son-in-law, which leaves the Hillview Inn-which then became the Inn-Terrior, and even latter-Kelly’s.

Maybe it was hard to compete with the entertainment being offered at Carey’s?
