Paint Bank General Store located on Rt 311 in Craig County, VA.

http://www.paintbankgeneralstore.com/

Took this picture yesterday as a buddy and I stopped in to get a late breakfast on our way to the Marlinton, WV area. They have a great restaurant in the back and they make a mean BLT

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?
Hey!!

SO true. And now Foxedupone is posting pics from (near) my old stomping grounds. I grew up in Culpeper, VA very near Rapidan.

You all have some cool pics keep 'em coming!
