The Five And Dime Store In Nashville That’s A Lovely Trip Back In Time
The ol’ five and dime, the neighborhood general store, the corner market. No matter the term used, the feeling is the same: nostalgia. A general store dredges up thoughts of neighborhood visits and the kindly staff, the quirky, fun and useful items that line the shelves. In Nashville, Hey Rooster General Store has reinvigorated the nostalgic element of a five and dime and has given it a contemporary spin, perfect for young and old alike.
Hey Rooster General Store relocated from its original home in East Nashville in 2017, and now makes its home in Hillsboro Village. The storefront was once inhabited by Book Man, Book Woman before its closure.
Touted as Nashville's "first modern general store", Hey Rooster has been a local fixture in the city since its establishment in 2013. The bright, airy space not only makes for a beautiful atmosphere, but it lends to a great shopping experience.
Here you'll find all sorts of unique and darling gifts, from travel guides to greeting cards. It's a general store that seeks to invigorate a sense of beauty in the home, by way of tea towels or otherwise.
The fantastic central location in historic Hillsboro Village makes it easy to pop in and pop out by way of Fido or the Belcourt Theater.
The great selection of items made in the United States helps customers support local makers on the daily, and the wide windows flood the entire space with spades of light.
Hey Rooster has given the classic general store a solid spin, providing a bright, contemporary space that stocks its shelves with spades of artisan products for special occasions and daily use.
It's a step back from general stores stuffed with bags of flour and potatoes, and the change is most definitely welcomed. The store also hosts events and gatherings, so make sure to keep an eye on their calendar!
Hey Rooster General Store is located at 1711 21st Ave S in Nashville, Tennessee, and you can visit from 10am to 4pm on Sundays, and from 10am to 6pm Monday through Saturday.
