I walked in and thought cute, clean and the staff greeted us with a hello and asked if we needed help. I thought the prices in the store were a little high. I mean $30 for a t-shirt when you can go down the road and get one for half that price. We did buy Mad Libs and are excited... More

This a great store with lots of Vermont items and lots of nostalgia. They also have a nice line of clothing and nice housewares. It's a great place to find a gift or pick up some Vermont Cheese and Maple Syrup.

Howard E. Shaw would be proud to know the store he founded in 1895 has evolved and prospered. When we visited it was packed with customers combing though a vast variety of goods. The ancient floor boards creaked underfoot reminding me of both the store's age and the decades of service it has provided to Vermont. So much to see... More

A beautiful building from the outside, which means you can't resist going inside to discover more. Lots of quintessential Vermont gifts and souvenirs with friendly young staff behind the counter. Difficult not to find something you'd like to buy in here.

Shaw's General Store is a great place to get that special Vermont souvenir. They present the unique gifts as well as shirts, hats and other Vermont and Stowe souvenirs. They also present an assortment of quality clothing, shoes and accessories. This is a place that you must stop in if your visiting Stowe, Vermont.

The store was very fun and cute and probably the main gift shop in the town. The staff was very friendly. The store itself had a very large selection of knick knacks and cute souvenirs!

We visited in early spring during the post-ski off-season, and scored some incredible deals at this wonderful shop! They have everything, from cute clothes that scream New England to cool VT t-shirts. I took home gifts for everyone in my family, including North Face and Merrell items. All on great sale! Staff is super-helpful and friendly without getting up in... More

My husband and I purchased a blouse and winter hat for me, some gloves for him as well as some hand lotion for both of us. The location is central and the interior, spacious. The blouse was $62.00, the hat, gloves and lotion, though, I don't know the costs of. The total was something like $120.00. Expensive, yet, apparently quality... More

This is one of these old fashion stores which has everything. Got to the resort and found a year- round swimming pool. I wanted to swim. Shaws had a few suits, even for a middle aged woman! Job done and at a very reasonable price. This is high praise!
