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 Today, the concept of a general store may seem outdated, but they do still exist.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.
