This iconic crossroads store was owned by Betty & Maro Callier. In trying to answer where the crossroads got its name, Norman Carter wrote in The Pobiddy Joke Book (1995): Nobody knows exactly how Pobiddy got its name. I remember when my good friends Betty and Maro Callier had a store at Pobiddy and Maro drew a little chicken on the front of the store and underneath wrote “Pobiddy”. Other people say there were some people sitting on the porch of a home in Pobiddy when a little chicken ran across the road and a car hit it and killed it. Someone on the porch said “po biddy!”.

Cunningham Furniture was originally located just down the street, in the Dorough Building (Carter’s Hardware) but moved here before 1930. Joe Cunningham was a friend of Ty Cobbs and was not only a furniture retailer but also a craftsman. He made bats for Ty Cobb.
