A Trip To Putney General Store In Vermont Is Like Stepping Back In Time
Nowadays, you can drive along any major highway and come across dozens of big-box grocery stores like Walmart, Price Chopper and Hannaford. Gone are the days of small Ma and Pa shops located in the heart of small towns…at least for most towns. Luckily, there’s a few places in Vermont that are still home to these nostalgic locally-owned businesses and Putney, Vermont is one of them. One trip to Putney General Store, and you’ll feel like you’ve gone back in time.
