My eye dr is right across the street from the General Store and I love going inside there to see all the nostalgic candies, jellies, jams, corn chowders, butters and merchandise they have for sale. I could spend hours in there.

What a wonderful old store. Creaky floors, merchandise from the past and a real Soda Fountain. The vintage pickup parked right in front of the store brings back memories. Such an amazing store! You will love it!

They have so many cool things in here! It’s fun just to look around too. This town is like stepping back in time. The vibe is so chill and the people are so friendly. It feels like going home.

I’ve known the owner almost all my life and The General Store in Jefferson is always and top destination. They have an old timey soda fountain, candy galore and every kind of nick-nack you could ever imagine.
