Two sisters, Emily Darst Walker and Inez Darst Gunderson, ran the Swanee Grocery along what is now Gilman Boulevard for years. Later residents remember it as Don’s Quick Stop. It was part of a rapidly deteriorating assortment of odds and ends once cited by IREQ (Issaquah Residents for Environmental Quality) as the worst looking commercial strip in Issaquah.
