The Argyle General Store was built in 1921 by Arthur Lobb of Warren. Over the years the store has been operated successively by Arthur Lobb (1921-1938), Mr. Cameron (1938-?), Patterson family (?-c1941), Fred Sumner (c1941-1944), Lowry family (1944-1958), Sam and Lil Segal (1958-1994), and Lil Segal (1994-present). At a visit in July 2019, the store retains its original tin ceiling which had been painted by the Segals when they bought it.
