We love going to the General Store for ice cream and fudge. Plus, the souvenirs are affordable. You can eaily purchase a tee shirt for under $20.00.

If you want gifts or shirts or caps with local flair, then shop here. There is something for most folks.

This shop carries a lot of different items and their ice cream counter is a favorite. Fun just to wander around in.

The general store has a little bit of everything, just as the name implies. We went for ice cream and it was so yummy. Also found a sun hat which I needed during the beautiful week we visited.

My girls ride their bikes here dozens of times each summer for ice cream. Shop for the people back home, or you Beaufort tshirts.

There is always something here to take home as a memory of our visit. They offer lots of variety with a wide range of prices. My grandson bought some off-tasting jellybeans. They ended up offering lots of amusement throughout the day but be prepared for lots of reaction.

After our yummy jambalaya at Spouter's Inn, we continued our Main Street stroll and stopped in at the general store----best find? Delicious, home made fudge! We all went back for more---especially the chocolate and salted caramel. We nibbled on that the rest of our trip!

The General Store has lots of things. Tee shirts, candy, Salt Water Taffy, and several flavors of fudge can be had here as well as scooped ice cream (cones and cups). The ice cream is made by Maiola which is a local favorite and for good reason. It tastes great. Just wish they had had regular chocolate chip ice cream.... More

Well within walking distance of anything downtown, the General Store has what you need. It's fun to browse, fun to buy and fun to eat the goodies. Very convenient with friendly staff.
