store. Not to mention tackle, sandwiches, chewing tobacco, beer,
hardware, and a tent. wouldn't be very convienent if you couldn't now
would it???

You've just described 'Powers Grocery', in Grangeville, about 7 miles the
other direction. When you walk in there, it's like going back in time.

In fact, it's where I got my 1-1/4" PVC to beat the bearing race onto my
fork. Try getting a 12" piece at a Lowes, or Home Depot.

Over here it is called 'Kelly's' which is a Texaco Station, with a
grocery, and a sporting goods/ tackle store, and they sell live shrimp.
