I love going to Winston and Chloride. These are small towns that are not owned or managed by any one person or group. These are towns with residents and private properties.
You will come across families whose roots go back 50, 75, 100 years or more.
This is a ranching area and you will frequently see pickups and horse trailers.
The Winston Store is a favorite stop.
They have a great selection of items / gift items in the back room. Sell gasoline, groceries and what nots.

DO NOT pass this up.

More than a general store. Don't be deceived by the small, unassuming structure. This little oasis carries gas/oil, lovely restroom facilities, anything and everything a human could want or need. As a self-proclaimed expert shopper, I was unable to walk out without purchasing an array of shirts, travel bags, blankets, etc. It's crazy. Warning, If you have a shopping addiction, don't go in.

One of the nicest bathrooms I've ever been in

If you're going to Chloride you MUST stop here. Use the bathroom here because the rest area in Chloride is RUSTIC, and not in the charming way of this general store. You can buy all kinds of western tchotchkes. Load up on snacks and beverages because there are NONE in Chloride. Everyone working there was nice and helpful.

Great find!

Trekking through the Gila National Forest to our destination, we found a sweet spot at the Winston General Store.

Yes, they have many products like food, ice cream, camping supplies, and kitchen plates and dishes, but they have the best bathrooms...large and clean...that also includes your own private shower!

Whether you need a piece of fruit, or a pit stop, this is a quaint reminder of the past and a very handy location for a quick stop for gas.

Nice little store.
Aug 2017 • Friends
This is a nice little store that stocks a little bit of everything, from food to cleaning supplies, etc. If nothing else, stop for an ice cream bar while you look around at several unusual items. A little too much on the guns and ammo for me, but overall a good store.

If you've never been to an eclectic General Store that has everything for the local rancher you should come here and see it.

Old time general store.
Jul 2016 • Couples
Friendly people!! A little self serve food area with plenty of local crafts and handmade items from local artisans. This might be a small town store but it takes you back to old time America. We do suggest filling up with gas before u embark on this trip. It's so worth the time. Wildlife is so abundant make sure your camera is always ready

Who's it for?

Since locals pull up to fill their gas tanks here and one side room has more animal calling devices for hunters than I've seen in similar spaces elsewhere, it's evident that there is a serious neighborhood customer base for what this store sells. On the other hand there is also a surfeit of "cute" cowgirl sayings on tee-shirts and wrappings on toilet rolls sporting country puns that seem designed to appeal to tourists. Both groups can also get fast food that simmers away on low flame burners. The restrooms are large, wood lined, ornamented and clean - one even comes with a shower; they could well fit in a private home. Definitely an unusual place that merits a stop but how it survives at the start of a dead end road to a ghost town is anyone's guess.

Exactly what a general store should be...general
Oct 2015 • Couples
I first visited this general store in 2011. It reminded me so much of the general store of my youth. It is the first time I saw a pair of fencing pliers or palmers. Little did I realize that I would be using a pair 4 years later on my newly purchased ranch just 70 miles away. I take guests to this store to give them a flavor of Americana. Although "tricked out" for tourist, this store serves a necessary function to the local area. Get a coke, a lantern or gas from this station. But find a reason to stop in. Something is bound to make you smile.
