Our Heritage

A Grand, Yet Modest Opening

1885

Orcemus Cass Gibson, and his wife Hannah, together in 1885, started a pie shop that was just two store fronts east of the present W. College St. location of Gibson’s. It was a small seed of a business, that would continue to sprout goodness, community and quality into the region. In 1905, Burt Gibson, and brother Cass, brick by brick, expanded the shop into “the wholesale, retail bakery, candy, and ice cream business”. 

About us

Community, Treats & Kindness

2022

Caring for your community is a constant, no matter what challenges you face as a business; you are part of a circle of human beings whom you wish to serve, help, befriend.  Harold Gibson recalled during the Depression, “Any retailer in town had to pull his horns, and if you were a food store, destitute people would come straight through town and ask for something…maybe as many as 100 a day.  The most devastating thing I can recall was one night when Dad was about to close up, a young couple with a baby wrapped up in newspapers came in and asked for something to eat…Dad gave him something to eat in the store and also something to take along.”
