About US
Blue Ridge General Store is located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina near the town of Crossnore. Blue Ridge General Store sits on the Eastern Continental Divide at an elevation of almost 4,000 feet. We are surrounded by Fraser Fir Christmas tree plantations. While some might say we are "off the beaten path", we prefer to think we live in one of the most beautiful places in North Carolina... a place that is worth the little extra drive to get to! Why not come and see for yourself!

If you are only looking for a large, highly advertised "country store" with thousands of square feet of floor space and millions of dollars in inventory, in a heavily traveled tourist area, then Blue Ridge General Store is not for you! However, if you are looking for a small, family oriented and family operated store patterned after those found in virtually every hoot and holler of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the early 1900's, carrying an assortment of quality foods, candy, snacks, and staples, then we may just be what you are looking for!

We also offer on-line sales of some of our products from our website which include jams, jellies, pancake and baking mixes, gift baskets, and genuine handmade items from the Pennsylvania Dutch Country as well as local North Carolina craftsmen.
