Old Grocery Stores

You are now visiting Hawkins County TN.

This is on Stanley Valley Road.  The sign reads, I think, “Blar’s Grocery”.

This one, on Caney Valley Road at Fields Gap Road, is the former R E ROLLER GRO

Both of these were taken with a Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS.  They’ve been Photoshopped only to improve contrast.  I blew out the photon wells when I took the first one, but the second one is a little better.

    Is the old Osborne grocery still standing on Flower Gap Ridge just belwo the Flower Gap Baptist Church? Anderson Osborne use to run it.

    • I’ve seen an Osborne Grocery, but I’m going to have to dig around in my pix to find it. Osborne is a fairly common name. I may be thinking of a store up in Nickelsville.
