    I did a search and did not find a thread about general stores. Let's start one. General Stores are usually in small towns. They were very important in the old days because they were the main shop of the community. Today they are not as common but they are still around in some small rural towns.

    Here is a Link that the inmate Clampett sent of a google map with all the locations of general stores around the country and some overseas.

    General Stores are such a staple of riding rural America, Great thread idea!

    Met with some friends in Moonshine, IL as I was riding around the country in 2012.

    Our local general store. It's 70 miles to the northeast to a real supermarket and/or hardware store, 80 miles to the southwest for the same. So this little store carries a bit of everything.

    Looks like you and I travel in the same places!

    And of all the times I've been to this place, this is the only pic of the store? Not just a general store.... but a damn fine restaurant inside!
