Old Fashioned Country Store
Today the world is filled with corporations and big businesses and the money all goes to these tycoons. The days are gone of old country stores that used to have everything you needed. There is still some value stores around and Dollar Generals, but it isn’t the same. The dollar stores are still owned by big corporations. If you look around you can still find county stores that have values to shop from. Somewhere you can get a variety of things that you wouldn’t expect together. A turtle trap, hummingbird feeder and a meat grinder all in the same place. That is a true old fashioned general store.
General stores often have basic daily things that you need like food items such as bread, cheese, and milk, and stuff like toilet paper, paper towels, a Philips head screwdriver, and other hardware and electrical supplies. The idea of a general store has been around for centuries and although a few are still floating around there isn’t much left with the concept.We have become an increasingly urbanized world and corporations have taken over most of the Mom and Pop general stores. It is hard to compete with the low prices they can offer with foreign products on the shelves. The term “general merchandise store” is also used to describe the big stores with a lot of goods and departments. Stores like K-Mart, Target and Walmart would be the General stores of today. They are one shop stops with low prices. The concept is the same, but they are certainly run very differently than an old country store. There are still old fashioned country stores for you to visit at http://www.texastastes.com/
