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 In most towns, these charming old-fashioned local businesses have been replaced by big box stores, but there are actually a few left in Florida with histories that go back more than a century.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.

Location: 100 Avenue A, Suite 1C and 1D, Fort Pierce, Florida 34950

Hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 8:30 a.m. – 9:00 p.m (limited menu served after 5:00 p.m.) Sundays, 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Sundays. Closed Mondays.
