The Oldest General Store In Delaware Has A Fascinating History

There’s a lot to love about Slower, Lower Delaware and the old-fashioned way of life is a huge selling point for visitors and residents alike. Not only are there many Mom and Pop restaurants and shops, but Sussex County is home to the oldest General Store in Delaware – one that’s been operating for over 80 years! Wilson’s General Store is still the place to go for many commuters and Georgetown residents for a coffee and a scrapple sandwich on their way in to work, or for a great lunch on their midday break. Have you ever been there? If not, take a look at what makes it such an incredible place.

Wilson’s is open from 6:00 AM – 6:00 PM Monday through Friday, and from 6:00 AM to 2:00 PM on Saturdays. Stop by when you’re visiting the unique, historic town of Georgetown, Delaware.
