In addition, Gurley Street was the location of the first chain grocery store in Prescott, the Piggly Wiggly. Located at 134 W. Gurley Street, in 1923 the Piggly-Wiggly Market was managed by Edward A. Kastner (b. 1868 - d. 1933), a Canadian businessman who came to Prescott to establish a confectionary store. The Great Fire of 1900 destroyed this store. Kastner then opened E. A. Kastner & Co. Grocers, and in 1925, he purchased the Piggly Wiggly franchise and retained full ownership. By 1928, the business had moved to 126 W. Gurley St. With Kastner’s death in 1933, George Norman Hoffmann (b. 1878 - d. 1950) became the new manager. Sources: Prescott City Directories, and Arizona Journal-Miner, Obituary for Edward A. Kastner, July 25, 1933.
