Shopping today has never been easier – whether we want to head to our favorite brick and mortar shop or just go online. However, not so long ago, general stores were the place to go whenever Missourians needed something. We’re quite fortunate to still have several classic general stores around the state. Crane’s Country Store, in fact, holds distinction as one of the oldest general stores in Missouri.
