“The store has been here since 1957 and it is located right in the center of town. We are the dividing line between the left side of town which has the white church and community center and the right side of town, which has the black church and community center. But we are right here smack dab in the middle and are one of the only places where white folks and black folks both come, talk about their days, share a cup of coffee and just mingle. People buy groceries here, but this store is also our town’s meeting place.”
