Here’s what our customers are saying . . .

“The Old Town General Store is a great place to pick up a premade gift basket full of Michigan-specific treats, or you can select items yourself and have a basket assembled. The staff is also very friendly and helpful. Both me and the company I work for use this place regularly to provide gifts to friends and clients.”

“Wonderful products, reasonable prices and more of an experience than a store!”

“Holy cow what a charming place! I needed some items for a Michigan-themed auction basket and decided to give this store a look; what a good decision. Tons of Michigan made/sourced items, good variety, and really friendly and welcoming staff.  I will definitely be going back.”

“I love everything about this store – the super friendly staff and owner, the cool vegan chocolates, the coffee (especially the free coffee sample so I can drink while I browse) and the local Michigan items, both products and foods. I also love that I can go get an inexpensive, but good bottle of wine which makes a perfect gift when I’m on the run somewhere. Another great thing is they have a customer loyalty reward program so every once in a while, I’m surprised at the register with something off my order.”

“Shopping in the Old Town General Store isn’t a task, it’s more like a trip to see a friend.” Sydney Ford in the Capital Area Women’s Lifestyle Magazine/ http://cawlm.com/article/old-town-general-store-truly-michigan-made/
