Carquest Auto Parts, 2415 Main Street, Miles City, Montana.
When I was a youth the Carquest auto parts store in Miles City was known as Valley Motor Supply and it was located on the corner of N 5th St and Pleasant Street. The building shown in this photo was known as "A&T Supply" — a farm and ranch supply store.
I believe that many years before that this was a grocery store — an I.G.A. grocery store, possibly "Jack’s I.G.A.".
