The Middle-Of-Nowhere General Store With Some Of The Best Sandwiches In Kansas

Do you remember general stores like the old-time country stores that were common in days past? These places have now largely been replaced by corporate big box stores, but you can still find a few of them here in the Sunflower State. One of our favorite general stores is Sugar Creek Country Store in Saint Marys, Kansas. This specialty shop has basic food and groceries, plus a small deli that serves up some of the best sandwiches in Kansas. You’ll find a delightful array of items and cooked foods at this Kansas general store!

Check out this YouTube video by Sugar Creek Country Store for a virtual tour of the shop:

Besides Sugar Creek in St Marys, does Kansas have any other old-time general stores? 

There are a number of other old-time general stores in Kansas. Some of the best include:

Open since 1925, the Old Riverton Store is the oldest continuously-operating general store in Kansas. This historic spot is located off of Route 66 and offers souvenirs, snacks, memorabilia, and more.

Located in a town of just a few hundred people, Circles Pecans and Country Store is a one-stop shop for jams, fudge, pies, nostalgic candies, sandwiches, and some of the best pecans on earth (grown by the family who owns the store!).

Spanning 10,000 square feet, the Kansas Country Store offers tons of flavors of delicious homemade fudge. They have everything from peanut butter chocolate (my personal favorite) to orange cream!
