Temple Food Mart was founded by Arthur Skiathitis, Sr. several decades ago and is located at 121 Baker Street in Manchester. Years after opening the grocery business, he married Julienne Fleurinda Thibodeau. As the decades moved onward, Julienne became sort of a Matriarch at the store. The month of August is bittersweet as Julienne was born and also passed away during this month.
She was known as "Mrs. Maple" at a local Dunkin Donuts she would frequently go to. A small carvout in the store memorializing her spirit and good nature is "Julienne's Maple Nook." Please try some great NH Made Maple products this fall and winter. Help make this an even greater 5th year for the store since reopening. Thank you in advance.
Pictured is Julienne and Elvis, as he was impersonated in concert at Canobie Lake Park over 15 years ago. As he sang "Love Me Tender," he walked off the stage, placed a red scarf around her neck, kissed her on the cheek and said "Happy Birthday Mama." As you can see, she was BEAMING! One of my fondest memories of my mother. Please Snapchat and Follow & Share on Facebook at Temple Food Mart.
