Davis General Mercantile In North Carolina Will Transport You To Another Era
Whether you grew up in the ‘good old days’ in North Carolina or were born in a more recent decade, a visit to an honest-to-goodness old-fashioned general mercantile store is like stepping into the past. General mercantile stores gained a real foothold in rural communities in North Carolina in the 1800s and few from that era still exist. But Davis General Mercantile is a hidden gem that not only survived the Great Depression and two World Wars, it’s still in the same Davis family as the day it opened its doors in 1890.
