One Of The Oldest General Stores In Florida Has A Fascinating History

Who doesn’t love visiting a general store? These special shops were once the backbone of every community, but sadly, these days they are increasingly rare. In most towns, these charming old-fashioned local businesses have been replaced by big box stores, but there are actually a few left in Florida with histories that go back more than a century. One of the best examples of a long-running general store that’s still successful today is the P.P. Cobb General Store in Fort Pierce.
