Hope that they retain the Old Country store charm to this place. It is a neat experience. Looked to be more on the current lines last trip. :(

Only has a few items in the store and it looks like they've been there for awhile. Maybe the store was better in its heyday. But the one positive thing was that the chocolate malts were good.

It's actually been a couple years since I've been in the store but when my husband and I went, they had a little bit of everything. Antiques, work clothes, and pretty much everything you'd expect from a general store! Definitely worth stopping in if you...More

A little bit of everything. If they don't have it, I am sure they can find it. Busy little place. They are one of the few places that sells air filters that are made locally. Friendly, knowledgable staff.

This use to be a wonderful store. I have taken out of town guests there repeatedly for years. Had a great old fashion toy section, carried hardware, carhart clothing and more. Last few times in there is was sad. Hardly any stock. No work clothing....More

Don't really agree with the 5 stars, although it is a cool old spot. If there was more inventory and better organized, I could see it. With a little more work, this place could be awesome. Worth a look around though.

It's an old timey country store with a wide variety of local home made foods. Samples of many items available. Unique gift items as well. You will be glad you stopped in! Healthy snack alternatives too!
