Long before the supermarket came along, rural Arkansans depended upon the local grocery store for the necessities of life. Many times, the local business was the only one of its kind for miles around. The long abandoned Turnbo’s Grocery, located in the Baxter County community of Three Brothers, was typical of such a store. While the numbers of such stores are smaller in today’s modern world, many still exist in small-town Arkansas.
