S.W. & C.S. Davis Company General Store - Croft, NC
If I told you that the photo above was taken just a few miles from the heart of Uptown Charlotte, would you believe me? Well, it was, and this general store has been sitting off of what is now Old Statesville Road (NC 115) for over a century.
The Davis General Store has been in operation since 1908 selling farm and garden supplies, hardware, kitchen and household goods, animal feed and pet care, clothing, and of course various amounts of groceries.
In the past, you could even fill up your tank at Davis General Store.
I wonder how long it's been since that pump has operated.
I wanted to go inside and look around; but unfortunately I passed by on a Wednesday afternoon. The only weekday afternoon they aren't open.
Oh well, maybe next time. Just hopefully when they aren't on their lunch break.
