Nestled among a stunningly beautiful area of northeast Alabama is a small unincorporated community called Grove Oak. Most folks know Grove Oak as a small community you drive through on your journey to beautiful Buck’s Pocket. The area was once busier and hosted a school, store, post office, cotton gin, and restaurant.
Grove Oak is located in a rural area of DeKalb county and within a short drive to many popular destinations including: High Falls, Buck’s Pocket, Morgans Cove, and Lake Guntersville State Park.
One local resident is on a mission to bring back a taste of southern tradition and has revived one of our lost staples, the local store. Many small family owned stores have shut their doors and made way to the corporate take over of America. In such a rural area a trip to the store can be time consuming and costly. Most folks think of a store as place to buy goods but it much more ,it is a place for folks to meet and share stories and develop a stronger community.
One resident has re-opened the Grove Oak store and has opened the door to music, food, and everyday goods.
If you are in the area visiting beautiful High Falls, Buck’s Pocket, or on your way to Guntersville State Park, be sure to stop in and visit The Grove Oak Store.
