Freels Barn Sign

As far as I know, Freels Drug Store had two locations; one in Kingsport on Broad Street (opened in 1935), and one in downtown Morristown on Main Street (opened in 1949).  When I was a kid, I’d hit the Freels in Morristown for a grilled cheese sandwich and a Coke (both for 25 cents) before going to the Princess Theatre to see the Saturday matinee of an oater and a serial.  This paint up, somewhat interrupted, on a barn on Sullivan Gardens Parkway, just outside Kingsport, is still there, as of this posting date.
