4- Stockton Store #518

In June 2008 I was contacted by Floyd Perry, Jr. of the Stockton area who was a loyal
Gemco customer and wrote an article in his local paper in 1999 about Gemco. Floyd also
came across a photo album that once belonged to Gemco Security Guard Paul Barbour
pictured here- 
"Hi Roy, I really enjoy your GEMCO tribute website. I have many fond memories
of GEMCO. I was a longtime customer from the time they opened in STOCKTON,
CALIFORNIA in 1968 and until they closed in 1986. I don't know if you read
my guestbook entry today? Just yesterday, I purchased a GEMCO STORE,
STOCKTON CALIFORNIA, GOING OUT OF BUSINESS album for $25 from a used Book Store Website.
The album has about 50 photos (of employees, the inside of
the store as well as the exterior of the store), Newspaper
clippings of
GEMCO and other Ephemera.  Some of the photos were taken by me around the time GEMCO announced
that they
were going out of business, October of 1986.  These are Exterior shots of the STOCKTON,
CALIFORNIA GEMCO. Thanks...Floyd."
Stockton employees- we NEED YOUR HELP IN NAMING THESE PEOPLE. These are great photos and we need
names to go with them. If you know anyone just email me at
Roy at
UPDATE- A BIG thanks to Cindy Gooding Wagner who knew the names of
a lot of the people and to Greg Waddell and to the "guest".
Added in 2010-"I have some names for some of the photos for Gemco 518.
Again... thanks for all the great photos and info.. many great memories.
For many years Gemco 518 had anual BBQ's/ reunions with many of the people in these photos.
All the best. Tim Bonuccelli"
