It’s a typical Tuesday and Lee Hinkle is where he’s been most every Tuesday of his adult life — working his family’s grocery market, Conrad & Hinkle, on the square in downtown Lexington. Memories flow as he talks about an upcoming Tuesday (Feb. 12, 2019) that will be anything but typical. It’s the day this beloved hometown institution celebrates 100 years in business.
