Sell typical souvenirs, only ice cream in DT beaufort, drinks and the like. Pricey for food, limited selection, but it is typical. Nothing special.

The prices here are good and they have a very good selection of tourist oriented souvenirs. And if you're lucky, there will be room for you to sit up on the porch to eat that ice cream and watch the traffic on Front Street or the boats in Taylor's Creek.

It doesn't matter what time of day, or how hungry you think you aren't, you just can't pass the General Store and not be tempted by their bins and bins of yummy ice creams. You may also be tempted by the many flavors of fudge, oh dear! The shop has a great selection of sun hats, tee shirts, sunglasses and beach towels -- everything you need for the beach or a boat trip. There are also rows of kids' books, seashell jewelry and ornaments and more -- everything you didn't know you needed til you saw them. Souvenirs and stocking stuffers galore. And a bench outside on the porch overlooking Front Street and the harbor, to sit and try to catch the drips of your ice cream cone. Enjoy it!

A tad small but filled with nestalgia. Fun to browse, and yummy dip ice cream! Not far from parking and close to waterfront.

The General Store had great ice cream, you could tell by all of the people pouring out of it with cones and bowls on a Saturday afternoon. I had butter pecan :)
