About
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.

This was a fun visit. I love that my new hoodie smells like it was smoked in oak, maple and apple wood, prices were reasonable, and i spoke to a friend and learned that it was a mistake not getting a sandwich...sigh, next visit. Great store to bring visitors family, kids...

Stopped in during our road trip through New England. The store looked much bigger from the outside. Great selection of kids toys. Friendly staff. Cool covered bridge behind the store. Would recommend if in the area.

This store is heavily promoted around the area. They have a few specialty items, such as fudge and smoked cheese. Aside from that, it is a historic building and they sell the expected souvenir items such as T-shirts, mugs, etc. Lots of products with the Brick Store printed on them. It's worth checking out if you're passing through the area but I would not suggest making a special trip to visit. Not terrible, but not fantastic either.

So I cant really say anything about their products, being that I didn't purchase anything. I am giving them a 1 star and a horrible review, because they made me leave with my 6 year old son, because we weren't wearing a mask. This whole covid thing is a bunch of BS. If you want to wear a mask that's your right, but its unconstitutional to force people to wear a mask. I refuse to raise my son in a world where fear rules. I will never even step foot in this place of any other establishment that requires a mask. This was my first time in the store and from what I saw everything was over priced anyway. I will continue to only shop in stores that respect peoples rights.

The staff is very friendly. Right near the store is a very long/old covered bridge. The store has some great cheeses and makes great sandwiches. Its not big, but worth a stop if you are in the area. You have to climb up stairs to get into the store.

We happened upon this great stop in New Hampshire. We bought sandwiches and sat on the front porch. The neighboring ice cream parlor / record memorabilia shop shouldn't be missed. Additionally, there's smoked meats on site ( smoker smelled great) for sale in the store. No tourist kitsch here. Try the private label sodas. Also, there's a covered bridge next to the store, and a really old church. A terrific stop!

If you like small quaint New England Towns this may be very well suited for you. If you require cell phone service outside of the store and more to distract you than a beautiful old covered bridge to take as stroll across then this may not suit you. Personally I think it's beautiful and wish that more of these small villages were still around. Just a small store, a church, a covered bridge and a couple other small businesses around the town common with a handful of houses is all you will find and with that comes peace and comfort. Welcome to New England.

The Brick Store is the "Oldest General Store in America". With fresh fudge made multiple times a week, on-premises made smoked sausage and cheese and an old-fashioned candy counter with room for Hoop-skirts - The Brick Store is an enjoyable visit. Next door is The Hop Ice Cream Parlor - not only ice cream, but a GREAT Rock and Roll memorabilia store (check out the 45's on the ceiling and many signed items by greats).
