This place takes you back in time to the early 1900's. Old fashioned candies. Amusing wall hangings and home made fudge. A great place to see so many things.

We just happened by the General Store and my kids loved it. All kinds of different candies and cool souvenirs. We walked out with lots of goodies!

It's always an adventure going into Gruene General Store because they have so many fun things from jellies and jams, old fashioned toys, and Christmas ornaments to great t-shirts.

If you want to find a souvenir, cool off with an ice cream cone, or enjoy some home made fudge then this is the place to go. GGS has something for everybody, no really, everybody. There are more nic nacs and Texas paraphernalia than anywhere I've ever been. Taste all sorts of salsa and marinades. Pick up a T shirt you won't find elsewhere. There is no telling what you might find. And just wandering around looking will cool you off. The AC works great there

Good place to browse a wide variety of Texas themed gifts and such,... complete with an old-fashioned ice cream bar. Right across the street from Gruene Hall in "downtown" Gruene.
