The Store is owned by Mr. Rhuebottom and is frequently visited by the people of Hazzard. The store is also frequently bothered by the Sheriff's department as the Sheriff and his deputies frequently drive through some of the goods that are brought out to the street for display.

In 1981, Boss Hogg temporarily foreclosed on the store and used it as a warehouse.[3] While in Boss' possession the wall separating the store from Cooter's garage was heavily damaged. Eventually the hole was fixed and the building returned to Mr. Rhuebottom's possession.
