The general store used to rule all. Before you could just pop online or drive to Walmart to get what you need, these country stores would be where you went if you needed anything from fabric to some candy for the kids. Nowadays, general stores might not be as integral to American society, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have value. A trip to the general store can take you back to a simpler time and provide a great way to spend some time browsing from treasures. We are particularly fond of this lovely little shop in Chepachet Rhode Island.
