Description: 

This country store is a gathering point for the inhabitants of "the Bend" (371), the "settlement" where Gants live at start of story (369). As "Varner's store" in "Frenchman's Bend," this location appears in 18 other Yoknapatawpha fictions. In "Miss Zilphia Gant," the unnamed store where Gant's "halfwitted" assistant tells and retells his grievance to the locals is not described (368), but the settlement is: "It was less than a village, twenty miles from the railroad in a remote section of a remote county" (369).
