Community-driven since 1923.
In 1923, Chas. Cannatella Sons opened in Melville, Louisiana. The store was originally founded by Charles Cannatella and his father, Joe. Charles and his wife, Mathilda, raised ten children in the home that they built next door to the store.
Over the years, the store has seen several expansions and the new millennium saw third and fourth generations managing the store, Pete Cannatella and sons, Brian and Grant.
