Mrs. Lilquist (she was a substitute North Kitsap School teacher for many years) and her son owned both the Big Bear and The Almo (downtown Poulsbo). The building where the Almo was is not a bakery but currently an antique shop. Prior to that, it was a woman’s dress shop. I believe it closed as a theatre in the early to mid 80’s but may have my time wrong. My great aunt (Bell Jensen) owned The Almo before the Lilquists, back in the 30s/40s, I believe. The Big Bear sign did indeed end up in a scrap metal yard in the Magnolia area of Seattle, though the last time I was over there, the yard was empty.
