Yesterday, Fred and I stopped by the General Store at Smith Mountain Lake. We browsed the different rooms in the gift shop and marveled at the SML souvenirs, unique gifts, fabrics, jewelry, books, Virginia snacks, jams, baking mixes, dishes, Melissa & Doug educational toys, and much more. There was even a coffee shop where you could go inside or drive-by and pick up your morning coffee on the way to work. The ladies at The General Store offered us terrific customer service as they answered our questions, gave us directions to local places of interest, and even had menus for near-by restaurants.
As we purchased a jar of the famous Jake and Amos corn salsa, the friendly clerk gave us a recipe for slow cooker chicken using corn salsa. We were very impressed with this unique gift shop and look forward to shopping there again. Located at 213 Scruggs Road, Moneta, The General Store at Smith Mountain Lake is a great place to visit and purchase gifts for any occasion. So plan your trip to The General Store and while you are there, don’t forget to buy a jar of the corn salsa. You will not be disappointed!
