The Small-Town General Store Is Alive And Well At Central City Mall In Central City, Nebraska
In the past few decades, small Nebraska towns have seen a massive loss of small, locally-owned businesses. Grocery stores, in particular, have been disappearing from rural locales at record rates. When a small town is able to keep its grocery store, it also holds onto a strong sense of community. This unassuming store in Central City has stuck around for more than half a century and today provides everything from produce and meat to freshly-baked goods and newly-released movies.
