This was one of the better places that we visited. The general store had cute merchandise in addition to locally made canned goods. The store was not overly packed as some general stores we have visited are. The coolest part was that they had 2...More

Fun old store with lots of antique appointments and fixtures. There is a wide array of candy and locally produced items as well as gift items. Soda bar stop another day. Jefferson was fun with good options walking around looking at architecture or antiques

Lots of candy, treats, and knickknacks from way back when. The store itself is much bigger than it looks from the outside. Definitely worth a walk through memory lane and to pick up some sweets.

The absolute best thing about the General Store is the 5 cent coffee. It's a full size cup and it's delicious! They don't cheat on the coffee. The rest of the place is your typical tourist store with oddball, fun things at inflated prices. There's...More

Giant tourist trap with 'souvenirs' and lots of candy, preserves, etc. Signs such as 'Bubba's Garage, Bubba's Rules'

Otherwise it’s just an enormous pile of sugary candy and inexpensive toys. To be honest, if it’s decent candy you’re looking for, the fudge place round the corner is a much better dal.

Great store with everything in it. Candy, soda, ice cream, clothes, food, toys, etc. I could go on all day. Probably spent at least 45 minutes browsing and purchasing some great things. Just good old fun.
