The store at Canonto (pictured below middle building) was a one room log building with a walk way running from the store to a storage shed at the side, also built of logs. An annex was also built on in later years. The store was run by Charles Davis. The building pictured on the right is a residence.

The post office was operated separately from the store by Tom Burke until he moved to Ompah. It was then operated by Murvil Cameron and later by Allen Shanks.
