Our History

An ancient building still serves an old business, well into the 21st century

"Historic buildings can be renovated, repurposed, retrofitted, restored and, on occasion, raised. Others – like C.M. Tanner Grocery Co. in Carrollton – simply remain. Workdays start early at the 127-year-old, family-owned wholesale grocery. At 6:30 a.m. on a busy Tuesday, employees already have begun meticulously arranging customer orders inside the delivery trucks that line the loading docks. There’s still a Tanner in charge here, and he’s balancing a cup of coffee and a stack of paperwork as he weaves his way through the throng, wishing everyone a good morning." -- Story by Rebecca Leftwich with West Georgia Living May/June 2015
