Celebrating an old-time General Store and the simpler days gone by.



Take a journey back to yesteryear in our historic store, dating to 1912. Visiting us is like taking a trip back in time to the simpler days when going to the General Store was depended upon for food, supplies, and neighborly news updates.


Life's a little easier than it was back then, but the pleasure of a trip to the General Store remains. Whether you relax and enjoy a game of checkers next to the potbelly parlor stove or stroll around as your footsteps echo on the wooden floors of our over 100 year old building, you will find a mix of extraordinary merchandise, old time candy, toys, antiques, collectibles and gifts.

At The Merchant General Store it is our goal to give our visitors the experience and charm of an old time general store. It is very rewarding to us and gives us much pleasure to see our visitors reminisce on their childhood memories or to come and experience what their parents, grandparents and beyond did when coming to the old time general store.
