Not only do they carry household items, over-the-counter medicines and staple groceries, but they also have their very own old fashioned soda shop. This favorite hang out seats approximately 50 people, serving simple sandwiches, shakes and malts, fresh-squeezed orangeade and lemonade, hot dogs and chili dogs, 20 flavors of ice cream, and cherry and vanilla cokes served from a 1949 soda fountain. Talk about variety!
"We have carried the Peepers brand readers for twenty years because of their high quality and style. These attributes have made Peepers a top seller in our store and the brand has a big following with our customers. In fact Peepers are so popular, people come to our store for their first time just because someone has told them where to find them!"-Kelly L. Odom
