Old General Stores Along the Way

Got any pics of your bike and an old general store? I love finding out-of-the way places like this on rides. Good joints to still get cokes in glass bottles and hear crusty old dudes talking politics.

Here's one we found yesterday:





And they still sell hardware inside...



This is McGill's at the intersection of Highway 55 and 161 in Clover, SC. USA. Anybody been to any old school general stores?

Rather than move it to the basement, moved it to the regional forum for your location. Ride Reports is the jewel in the crown of ADVrider and we're trying to keep the fluff out of the RR forum.

This was in Arkansas, I think. It's all a blur now.
