History
The Service Market, located at 122 East 8th in Holland, MI, appears in the following Holland City Directories: 1924; 1929; 1934; 1936; 1940; 1950; 1954; and 1956. In 1924 it was operated by De Haan and Boeve. By 1929, Simon Pool was running the store. And, finally, in 1936, the Pathuis family was in charge.
John, Henry and Fred Pathuis appear in several directories as the owners and operators.

By 1958, the Service Market had closed its doors.

Henry Pathuis (1918-2008) was the donor's father.
