The S & S stood for Smith & Steen. The Smith part comes from the actual owner of the property, who was Woodrow Smith of Laurinburg. His wife Sadie just happened to be another of the Caulk girls, and sister to my mother. My folks only operated the place for Uncle Woodrow and Aunt Sadie.
Now, when my family moved there 1/1/1953, the place had previously been known as S & F Grocery. And what did the "F" refer to you might ask? Well it was none other than Fuller, as Uncle Marvin and Aunt Lucy Fuller had previously operated the place. In addition to the store, there were also three rental cabins and a trailer park as part of the facility. It was located just west of the Coca Cola plant.
