On Sunday, they passed through Fulton and Franklin counties on the Sea to Shining Sea Bike Ride hosted by World T.E.A.

Early on, the store's customers were farmers who brought their grain in for grinding into feed or to pick up machinery and supplies. More recently, it has been suburbanites who bought lawn and garden supplies as the store's inventory changed to serve more homeowners than farmers.
