Esther Fogle of Easley took this photo of Cooper’s Country Store on US 521, near Salters in Williamsburg County.
She describes the place: “If you want to step back in time, take the “back way” to Myrtle Beach and travel down US 521, two miles from Salters. You will find Cooper’s Country Store, owned by Adalyn and George Cooper. It’s like being in another era. It still has the old wooden floors and old-timey meat cases. They sell buckets of lard and barbecued pigs’ feet. In the back of the store, you will find country hams hanging from the ceiling the old fashioned way. It’s probably one of the last ole-timey ‘Mom and Pop’ stores around and it’s right here in South Carolina.”
