Turner’s Tidbits


This is a match book cover the Parsons News and Novelty. At the time of the cover, the business was owned by Joe Barrick.

He conducted business out of 203 First Street, Parsons, WV. I know the business was owned by various folks and operated from various locations. I heard that after the flood it was moved to Front Street. I believe it was last located in the building that is now The Wellness Center. There was a drive up window so that folks could drive up, get their paper and/or some coffee and be on their way. If one went inside there were newspapers as well as knick-knacks to purchase as gift or for oneself. The last owner of the business was Allen Loughry.
