This local landmark is located near McRae on US 341. Angela Bowen Harris writes: I grew up in the community where this store was located. It was Z.W. Dowdy’s Store. He and his wife Geneva ran the store. Don’t know if there was a previous owner before them. I know that my parents had a charge account there and could go in and pick up groceries and pay for them later. The school bus I rode stopped there and let us kids go in and buy a snack. There was always a hoop of red rine cheese setting on the top of his meat counter. My parents bought me many ice cream cones from Z. W. Dowdy’s store. My favorite was chocolate ripple. I loved Mr. and Mrs. Dowdy and loved “going to the store” with my parents.

Jeff Bloodworth identified it as Stone’s Grocery in 2009.
