An advertisement in the 1916 Narva (Park College year book) lists W.F. Vawter - General Merchandise with no address.
Vawter's Super Market continued to serve Parkville into the 1960s. Vawter's was one of three traditional grocery stores operating in Parkville at the time. The other two were Broadhurst Market at 113 Main and Busch Market at 103 Main. At one time, all of these stores made home deliveries.
In 1996, the building facade was renovated to be consistent with its historic era.1
