Restored to its 1940s heyday, this grand downtown emporium features clothing, comfort footwear, traditional housewares, toys and over 500 old-fashioned candies. You'll also find an outdoor department brimming with travel and outdoor gear for all seasons. Step back in time at additional locations along main streets in Boone, Hendersonville and Waynesville and the original store in historic Valle Crucis.
Types of Tours:
Shop is a mercantile filled with all you need for life - traditional clothing, comfortable footwear, outdoor and travel gear, country gourmet foods, sturdy rocking chairs and toys powered by imagination. Take a walk down memory lane through barrel after barrel filled with old fashioned candy. Allow one to two hours for group visit.
Reservations required at least 14 days in advance. Motorcoaches can unload in front of the store on Biltmore Avenue or on Pack Square in front of Pack Place and walk down to the store. Groups that make reservations will be greeted, given a brief history of the store and a coupon to use while shopping.
