Dreamer I REMEMBER THE WOODROW TURNER STORE, BUT IT WAS IN BREATHITT COUNTY WASN'T IT. I DON'T THINK I'VE EVER BEEN IN JESS MAGGARD'S STORE BUT I HEARD IT' S A GOOD PLACE TO DO BUSINESS. DO YOU KNOW HOW LONG TURNER'S GROCERY HAS BEEN IN BUSINESS? WE'VE BEEN TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT. MY GRANDPARENTS RAN A STORE THERE CLOSE BEFORE TURNERS OPENED. I ALWAYS LOVED TO GO TO TURNERS WHEN JOHN RAN IT. HE WAS A REAL NICE MAN . I ALSO THINK THAT CHRIS IS A NICE PERSON TO AND HOPE HIM LUCK WITH HIS BUSINESS.
Yes Lothair I remember you both. Your wife was really a great leader and was always nice to me. To read the things on here, it takes me back to a time that I miss more than I thought I would then. It's hard to believe that it's 30 some years later. Wow, time flies.
did anyone ever go to grapevine to john mcintosh store, he run it after he brought it for his dad willie. i know john kept alot of people fron straving to death."lol" the store is closed now but i'm sure most of u been there at one time or another.
Does anyone remember some ol' country stores on the left hand fork of Big Creek? Years ago Boyd Campbell had a store on Big Creek. Also Al Eversole had one. Does anyone remember Virgil and Elva Napier's old store. Boyd Willis Baker later ran one in same location. Jessie and Betty Eversole had a store at one time, also Estill and Georgia Eversole ran a store over in Big Creek years ago I beleive in the 1960's. Now these places are just a memory.........
baldhead1, I remember John's store. I remember going with him to deliver groceries to people who didn't have a car. I'm pretty sure I know who you are. I bet you're Uncle Pook give you the nickname baldhead. Have you got a swamp rat that hangs around the house with you?LOL!!! Try and figure out who I am. ;D
i pretty sure u do know me but i could guess forever and never figure out who u are but your right we did deliver groceries to alot of people. times has sure changes u would strave to death now before anyone would delieve groceries unless u paid them 5 to 10$ to do it. and uncle pook and grandpa willie did give me that nickname.
I also remeber everyone that use to sit in front of the store on that old bench. Don't know how many cigs I stepped on barefoot there. Hurt like hell. You guys didn't make too many of those deliveries w/o me and the twins. We thought that was just the best thing ever.

I remember Maggard's grocery. I went there all the time with my grandmother. The Maggard's are wonderful people. There was also a store on left fork of mace's creek---Ned's Grocery and another one on left fork of mace's creek Ozell's. Ozell would cut pickled bologna out of a jar---it was the best stuff going!!!
I figured that would give it away baldhead. I also remember everyone standing around the Ms. Pac-Man machine hoping that someone would get to another board we hadn't got to yet. The light switch turned the machine on and off, so God forbid that someone would flip the switch off! I remember seeing John go out many a time in the pouring rain to pump gas for someone. You don't get full service like that around here anymore. If you could, they would want to charge you an arm & a leg for it. Then, whoever done it would be rude as hell to you. People don't know how to deal with the public anymore without being rude. I can't stand that! My philosphy is, if it pisses you off to be at your job then quit or at least pretend to be nice. Its not the customers fault because you have to work!!!!!!!!!!
There was 3 around Glomawr i remember from when I was a kid, Homer Hatfield and Galley Collins had a store on either end of the Glomawr bridge, and Jim Caudill had one at Cornett Hill.
I lived at Jeff but I remember those well. Galley had a boy I went to school with at Viper named Elhanon. I heard he went on to become a golf pro. I knew Jim Caudiill well, he and my father-in-law used to hunt and fish together.
