And the floors squeaked when you walked on them. Remember the little bell on the door when you entered?

When you go in and the wood floors are so old that they are so wavy that its like small swells in the ocean.Mason stone shows the date and lodge in like 1800's. Same family owns it still.

Not a general store but a gas station in my old town (~600 people)

I was almost out of gas and the owner let me fill up my car and come back the next day to pay.

No way would that happen where I live now (40k population)

Every time my wife and I go on a trip I always look for an old time country store. I look for wooden floors and a drink cooler that has ice cold sodas with names I dont see often. Things like local peanuts, pickled eggs and pickles in a big jar add even more. The place also needs a screen door . I love it.
