This place is amazing, they have everything. Whether you want a good steak some winter boots or some nails they have it. It's a rare thing that one place has both hardware, food and clothing and nice helpful staff to boot.

I lived in Charlemont until age 9. I went back for a visit last week and Avery's store is still the same. They really do have everything you need and more. Plus you HAVE to try their homemade sausage. It is SO good!

If you want an old fashioned shopping experience, stop at Avery's. Snow shovels, sand pails, screws, nails, flyswatters, and steak for dinner. Avery's has it all. It's a delight!
