An Unexpected Closing
The store then passed into the hands of the Wood family. It was eventually called the T.P. Wood Store and was run by Thornton Pralo Wood who ran the store with his wife Helen and son Willie. When Wood died in 1995 his son closed the store and post office in 1996.
The store was purchased by North Greenville University and was restored and is now known as the Tigerville General Store. The store has groceries for students as well as housing Papa John’s pizzeria.
