This little community store was built some time in the early 1930's by Henry Ford. At that time it was part of Mr. Ford's school system. It was a place where the kids could learn the skills to manage a retail business: keep inventory, meet customers , handle the money, etc. They sold school books and other school supplies in addition to other necessary items. This little store still serves the surrounding community
Today it is a family run business located at the intersection of two country roads. If you run out of milk or bread or just want a newspaper, this is a convenient place to stop. The product line has changed over the years to keep up with their customers. Today you can rent a movie. They even have food for your cat.
Whenever we are travelling, we like to stop at these community stores. They are a wonderful source of local information - where to eat and what to see.
