The General Store @ Downtown: Knick-knacks, Paddy Wacks, and more!
The General Store that Cafe 230 and Ole Times Buffet operator B.J. Fletcher (right) will open later this month at 104 N. Washington Street is enlisting community partners, including Paddy Wacks operators Deborah Wade (left) and Patti Tomlinson (center). Among the goods available in the former Economy Drugs building will be antiques and other blasts from the past on consignment, which is right up the alley for Wade and Tomlinson, who have a shop in the Livi & Co. market on Ledo Road. Next door at 106. N. Washington St., Bruce Young is opening the Fresh Market.
At 110 N. Washington St. in the former Churchwell’s spot, Sarah Edmonds and Jessica Blair are opening Verge, an upscale consignment shop. “This is truly turning into a community effort,” said Fletcher. “Home Depot saw what we’re doing and they are pitching in with paint and wood. Buffalo Rock has joined in. Meanwhile, I’m putting a call out to the community that anyone who has something they want to sell on consignment, they need to contact us fast, because this space is filling up. I’m here to tell you that downtown is coming alive.”
