The local co-op store was more than a retail business. The cooperative movement represented a way of life. This was especially true in rural areas where co-op halls were the site of socials, concerts, plays, lectures and dances. The Embarrass Cooperative continued to serve the community until December 1963 when it was destroyed by fire.
