The Percy flowers store
The first thing you need to know is a little local history. This store is named after Percy Flowers, who was one of Johnston county’s most prolific bootleggers during the 1950s and 1960s. Local lore says he made over a million dollars a year with his moonshining operation. At one point, he was producing alcohol on such a large scale that he purchased sugar by the train-car load.
Now you know the history let’s get to present day. Today’s Percy Flowers Store is a connivence store which serves Carolina Packer (red) style hot dogs, burgers and standard “breakfast to-go” fare. The dogs with chili, mustard and onions are well-known and loved. The burgers with chili are some of the best around.
The service is quick and has a large number of regulars as the staff greets many folks by name.
There is seating including several booths inside along with a couple of picnic tables and rocking chairs out front.
