Before there was Wal-Mart, there was J.L.Bowler’s  

The Virgin Valley Heritage Museum new display pays homage to the J.L.Bowler Store in Mesquite.

This is the story of how the store came to town in Joseph LeGrand Bowler’s own words:

“In June 1946, we contracted with Howard Burgess of St George, Utah to build a store in Mesquite on a lot purchased from Thelma Abbott. On November 15, we moved to Mesquite where I busied myself helping to complete the store, and Bert [Mrs. Bowler] spent long hours cleaning and orienting herself in a old home recently remodeled, purchased from Dr. Gilbert.

“On December 23, 1946, we had our grand opening at the store. Customers nearly broke our doors in before we opened at 9:00a.m. Six of us were kept busy throughout the day, and our receipts were in excess of $1,000. (As much as we would receive in a month at our old store in Gunlock, Utah.) Our shelves were soon depleted.”

The display will be up through September.
