Wilsonville, Coffee County GA

Wilsonville, Coffee County GA

I knew I’d like Thora Adams when she greeted me at the front door. She told me to remember her name by thinking “goddess of thunder”, and later related that as the mother of five sons, she had to be. Thora met her late husband Cornelius in her native England while he was stationed there in the military and they opened this store in the 1970s. An earlier store had operated at the same site. All their sons still live nearby, and people in the neighborhood are glad to have a neighborhood store and gathering place. I certainly enjoyed talking with her about country stores and everything else. Thora is open every day except Sundays. Stop by and see her on Georgia Highway 158, about 12 miles south of Douglas, between the 17 Mile River and the Ware County Line. Just bring cash. She doesn’t take debit or credit cards.
