  • Country stores mix old traditions with modern-day conveniences

    Miles away from the heart of Cynthiana, sometimes off the beaten trail and hidden away like a good secret, there’s a country store.

    “It’s kinda like a good friend... like family,” said Jim Dyer as he walked into the Leesburg Grocery one Monday morning.

    Dyer said he’d been making daily visits to the store for years.

    Irvin said he’s been coming to the Leesburg Grocery since 1960.
