there is nothing like this home town experience. This has been a long standing home town business, I was so happy when it was bought and reopened. The new owners have taken great care to refurbish this beautiful business.

I didn't expect much - I hoped to see the remnants of an historic store and some "general store" peculiarities for purchase. I found an over-crowded, crammed with much of nothing, tiny room, deli'ish service window at one end, cash register at the other. Two...More

The Brick Store has been recently renovated. They smoke their own cheese, bacon and sausage right on the side of the building--smoked pepperoni is delicious. Great deli - wide variety. Huge homemade fudge selection. This Old General store has something for everyone. Nice to sit...More
