20 famous general stores that are worth stopping for


Originally built in 1882, the Original Mast General Store drummed up business with the cheerful slogan: "We sell “goods for the living; coffins and caskets for the dead.”

That's their unique way of saying they've got everything a person could need, dead or alive. The store sells modern wares such as camping gear and books, as well as old-timey apothecary items.

The store also hasn't been hit by inflation; you can still get a cup for coffee there for 5 cents.
