Albert’s Store

Albert’s Store

This store was located in the triangle once formed by the intersection of Route 10 and Everets Road in the Oakland community.  It was a general store which served the community for several years.  It was owned and operated by Albert and Winnie Glover.  The store was a two story building with living quarters upstairs for the Glover family.  Dates of opening and closing are not available.  Scott Saunders says that he traded eggs with the Glovers for candy.  One egg would get him two pieces of candy.  This story must be true as it was retold at a memorial service for Al Saunders on February 26, 2011.  Ray Porter,  living in Suffolk,  was born and raised in Gloversville and passed on some of this information.
