South Eugene's Jiffy Market Closes: "End Of An Era"

Tiffany Eckert

A "signature" South Eugene business has closed its doors after 52 years. From the outside, Jiffy Market looks like a quirky convenience store--but inside-- amongst rows of fine wines and the smell of food cooking—it was a place where customers became friends. KLCC's Tiffany Eckert was a regular. Last week, she was there for Jiffy's farewell gathering and brings us the voices from this neighborhood joint.
