Rural Gro.

Driving down some narrow country roads, we came across this small store. The interior was jammed with shelves and products. The owner was not too friendly to a small group of strangers, but he was willing to sell us some snacks and water. We found out the gas pumps were not self-service when someone pulled up and the owner had to go out, unlock and run the pump.

The small local grocery is very interesting because of the way the owner must operate. He’s going to do it his way or nothing.

What a great old store. You don't find places like that much anymore. It has a lot of character.

Good grief, I haven't seen anything like this in decades! It's like a museum exhibit.
