52 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August 29 - September 4, 1997 Angle Moon photo McQuay's parcel sold to adjoining owner The McQuay's Market parcel, a Rehoboth Beach landmark, didn't go to auction as had been advertised on Saturday, Aug. 23. Rather, William "Butch" McQuay's widow Jewell decided on Thursday of last week to sell the property to adjoining neighbor Paul Lovett, owner of the Oak Grove Motor Court. The 18,000-square-foot property, including the market, five trailers and two apartments, was sold for an undisclosed fig- ure, although it was said to bring somewhere at the high end of the $150,000 to $200,000 appraised price. Due to the many people who expressed interest in the prop- erty, McQuay was urged to hang on until the auction date, but due to Lovett's long-time proximity, she decided to take his offer. Lovett, according to Carol Emmert of Emmert Auc- tions, hopes to rent the market as a grocery store and use the rest of the parcel to protect and improve his family's motel business. "I hope it does open back up as a grocery store - it would be such an asset to the city," Emmert said. The contents of the building and three vehicles however, were put on the auction block that morning, attracting a large crowd, as seen above. William "Butch" Emmert, who was named after the late Butch McQuay, takes bids for the eclectic inventory. McQuay, who operated the grocery store for 60 years, died at the age of 88 on July 23. The store closed shortly after his death, although the Ice House Liquor Store across Rehoboth Avenue remains open and in operation by the McQuay family.
