According to Dr. Johnny Young, this building first served as Rebecca’s “picture show”, but for most of its existence, it’s been a grocery store. Per Gary Stanford, it was Adamson’s Store first, followed by West Brothers. T.M. Waters, Rufus Stanford, and John Purswell were subsequent owners.

Teresa West Pylant wrote: This is the store I grew up in. I can remember riding the school bus to Rebecca, getting off at the store and daddy giving Russell West & I money, then we would take off through the back & go to Ms. Sellars and get the best hamburgers ever. I don’t remember exactly when daddy & Uncle Ronald moved the store to Ashburn, but I sure did miss Rebecca. A lot of times we would walk up to the corner where Jack Rabbit King had the station and listen to some of his tales. Bernice Thrower Jones added: I remember this store from the late 1950’s, when my dad drove the cotton to the cotton gin, he would buy all us kids a five cent cup of ice cream with the wooden spoon. As a child that was the best ice cream other than my mom’s home made ice cream.
