G.W. Carroll
General Merchandise

The G.W. Carroll store in Stantonville was one of those general merchandise kind. There were counters on the left as you went in, five cent candy bars behind the glass counters, ice cold cokes for a nickel, imagine what you could select for one thins dime. There were the unusual kegs of nails, boxes of bolts, stovepipe, plow points and horseshoes by the pound as you went out the back door. The shelves, of course, were lined with canned goods and tins of coffee and such.
