Pete's Store/Gossett Grocery

This store was owned and operated by J.P. (Pete) Gossett and his father Elbert from the late 1940s until about 1959. The building is still standing, and it is located at the intersection of County Road 29 (Rocky Plains Road) and County Road 25 (Double Springs/Lynn Highway). Standing out front is Reba Gossett. Notice the Coca-Cola for only 6 cents sign on the door. Photo courtesy Perlean & Peter J. Gossett.
