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 These places have now largely been replaced by corporate big box stores, but you can still find a few of them here in the Sunflower State.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!
