Combining a blast from the past experience with up-to-date wants and needs, Elkader couldn’t ask for more when it comes to the General Store and More. The General Store and More, located on Main Street along the beaming Turkey River and dam, has been a cornerstone in the community for over twenty years.
As soon as the front door opens, the bright colors, the delicious smells of homemade items, and the sound of popular music create a sensory overload. The General Store and More has a classic candy store vibe with never-ending jars and bags of sweet, sour, and/or salty treats that will make anybody’s mouth water. But to help those mouths from watering, there are a variety of teas, coffee, or other sweet drinks that can be enjoyed no matter what the season. The store also sells custom designed gift baskets, Rada Cutlery, Rabbit Creek, products and Edgewood Locker meats. The store is filled everyday items and kitchen knick knacks that you never thought you would need (but will now just have to have!). This is the perfect place to buy gifts, a quick and delightful lunch, or a satisfying treat.
In every aisle, in every corner, and on every shelf, there seems to be a homemade item that can’t be beat by some typical name brand product. Monica Stence, who is very friendly and hospitable, should be proud of her business and what it has grown into. All of the long hours she puts in to prepare the homemade packaged or freshly served food is clear from the moment you walk in. All of this effort has paid off. the variety of products, homemade or otherwise, truly set the General Store and More apart from any other comparable store, if there even are any!
The variety of incredible products, homemade or otherwise, truly sets apart the General Store and More. It's unlike anything else-- don't miss it!
