Pomona General Store — 4 Comments

  1. Great photos!

    I thought that the 7 Up logo was pasted over an ad for, maybe, spark plugs, but “Get real action” was indeed a 7 Up slogan.

    Not that long ago we were buying meat and chicken from a general store in the tiny town of Camargo. So tiny that the locals ran tabs, kept in a box behind the counter. So tiny that the store carried only the brands of cigarettes that the locals bought. So old-fashioned that they sold a lot of liverwurst. But the store went under when the residents began buying everything out of town.

  2. I’ve never been to Chicken Bristle. And I had no idea that the Camargo store (yes, that’s it) might rise again. If it does, I hope the community does its best to support it. (“Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what,” &c.)
