The Brick Store has been in business since at least 1790, making it America's oldest continuously operated general store. It is located in Bath, New Hampshire -- a quintessential New England village including the town common with war memorial, the picturesque white steepled church, and three historic covered bridges. As a true general store, The Brick Store offers a little bit of everything including Nancy's delicious homemade fudge, and their nationally famous Jim's Smokehouse products.

Sub roll or bulky roll delicious thick sandwiches and their own old fashioned root beer. Grab their homemade fudge for dessert. Take a chunk of smoked cheese or smoked pepperoni done right there at the store. The oldest operating general store for a reason
