DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The city of Dallas and its residents lost an icon this week.
James DiCarlo, of Jimmy’s Food Store, died on Sunday at the age of 92. He had been a grocer in Dallas for more than 70 years, first in south Dallas and then in east Dallas, where he and his father bought the corner store, Morse Brothers Grocery, located at Fitzhugh and Bryan.
Jimmy’s Food Store is closed today. The family, employees, neighborhood regulars and friends are celebrating Jimmy’s life at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church.
A crew from NewsRadio 1080 KRLD visited Jimmy’s Food Store this week to learn more about the man and the business that has endured for three generations.
