AT JACKSON AVE. 'POINT': This new four-store installation at 1606-1612 Jackson Ave. was built by Harry Yarmain of Ann Arbor, co-owner of Yarmain's Party Store which occupies one of the units within the setup. Other occupants are the Bea Jae Beauty Salon, which is owned by Mrs. Bette Puckett and Mrs. Joyce Goberdhan; the Point Barbers, co-owned by Joseph Huczak and David Murphy, and Green's Cleaners and Furriers. An old Yarmain store at 1602 Jackson is to be razed to make way for more off-street parking. A grand opening is planned at the Yarmain installation in about two weeks. Cost of the facility was not announced.

NO PUPPY DOG TAILS: But nearly everything else in the way of exotic foods is available in Ann Arbor. Snails, it seems, come unshelled in cans, and have to be put back and then baked with garlic and other seasonings, but many of the rare foods such as fried Mexican worms and fried grasshoppers may be eaten right from the container, usually crumbled and served as hors d'oeuvres.

EVERYTHING AT ONCE: Something new has developed in the Midwest over the last few years, and that is the party store. Designed to ease the plight of a host, these stores stock everything needed for a party from the wines (above) to the last little candle.

FOR PARTY OR GIFT: If it's a thank-you gift you're seeking, or a Christmas present for someone who "has everything" these boxes of imported foods are made to order. The foods contained in the boxes are also nice to have on hand for a party, for who can resist scotch smoked kippered herring or English toffee or plum pudding?

SPARK FOR A CENTERPIECE: Baskets come in every shape for every purpose and many are multi-purpose. Filled with unusual foods they are a good way to package a gift. The baskets themselves will serve as a foil for a fall centerpiece or your favorite plants.
