A Brief Summary
Richard Sr. & Martha Cox came to Auburn in 1951 from Mount
Vernon, Kentucky. They opened a store in the premises that was once owned by the
Woodmen of the World and is currently (November 2007) owned by Mike
Hughes . They later moved to the location in the old "Vick's Hotel" dining room,
which was where the business was carried on by their son Richard Jr. "Dickie"
Cox until his death in October 2007.
