Fodor's Review

For hardware, firewood, a quart of milk, locally grown vegetables, a deli sandwich, pumpkins for Halloween, snowboard and ski rentals, gourmet bird seed, and just about anything else you need, Fred's General Mercantile, half general store and half boutique, is the place to go and has been since 1979, when it was the first store to open at Beech Mountain.
