Breadings Cigar Store, Warsaw, IN

 

MPR owner, Michael Holloway will tell you that he received his B.S. from Breadings Cigar Store.  Michael worked at Breadings when he was in high school.  His step-father Ray Deafenbaugh was a part owner for awhile.  Although no longer in business, Breadings will long be remembered by many.

 

A little history on Breadings...

 

In the 1920s, Robert Breading Sr. and his son Lewis started Breadings Cigar Store in a two story wood frame building at 114 E. Center street on the east side of the alley. The business then moved into its current location in 1950 at 116 E. Center Street. The Breading's store was a popular gathering place for breakfast and lunch. Dominoes was such a favorite pastime there that tournaments were held. Opening at 5:00 a.m. and not closing sometimes untill 2:00 a.m. the next morning, Breadings quickly became known as the place to call or stop by for the latest news and sporting event updates. When the Moose, Eagles, Elks, and other lodges closed after midnight, Breadings was where everyone went for an early morning breakfast. The Breadings men sold the business to Ray Deafenbaugh and Sam Holbrook in 1954, and Dick Heagy joined the business in 1955. Dick Kehoe was a partner for a short time. Burleigh Burgh bought Kehoe's interest in 1959, and when Deafenbaugh and Heagy decided to sell their interest in 1974, Burgh bought Heagy's one third interest and Craig Smith bought Deafenbaugh's interest. Although not open late at night like years ago, Breadings continues to be a favored downtown meeting place. The annual Breadings Christmas party "packs the house" and one can still stop by for an occasional game of dominoes.

MPR employees volunteering at Feed My Starving Children in Eagan, MN, Oct. 2018.

 

In the belief that we are highly blessed, employees of MPR recently worked to give back to the global community by volunteering at Feed My Starving Children (FMSC). FMSC is a non-profit organization that provides nutritionally complete meals specifically formulated for malnourished children.   We were privileged to help hand-pack the meals before they were sent to food partners around the world.
