This Mississippi General Store Is Too Charming For Words
Long before the days of WalMart and other big retailers, general stores were the go-to place for basic grocery and household needs. Today, the concept of a general store may seem outdated, but they do still exist. One perfect example of these charming stores of the past is H. D. Gibbes & Sons in Learned, MS.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
H. D. Gibbes & Sons is located on Main Street in Learned, and is open year round “except for holidays and funerals.” A visit to this Learned treasure is a chance to experience some true Mississippi nostalgia! Have you ever visited Gibbes? Is a trip in your future?
