Join Linda Loomis as she interviews Helen Heid Platner, owner of Heid's, one of the oldest businesses in Liverpool. Her grandfather opened the first Heid's, a meat market, in 1886. The original business grew and expanded over the years and the first hot dog stand opened in 1917. The business has continued to grow and prosper. Helen, who was born and raised in Liverpool, attended Syracuse University and grew up working at Heid's. She reminisces about Heid's history, her family, and memories of life in Liverpool.
