General Store evolved from a shared dream among friends. Tired of the big store shopping experience of no warmth or personal contact, we vowed to create an atmosphere of good old-fashioned shopping fun. We live in the Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia area and put our thoughts together to bring you General Store. Besides carrying household goods and necessities, we wish to involve our community by providing a place for them to display their unique creations. We also provide classes for others to share their craft knowledge. Quilt classes are a great way to visit and share good times with friends. You will love our 100% quilting cotton fabric and Batiks, Batiks, Batiks! We officially opened May 9, 2003. We welcome our customers as friends into our home, excitedly sharing wares we believe will make for a more rewarding existence. We wish to pamper your senses by filling our store with wholesome items to ensure enjoyment for all ages. In short, a place to gather, to share, and to preserve family and friendship - a simpler spirit of support and warmth.
