Step back in time, slow down and enjoy just looking around an old time country store.. Fred's General Mercantile on Beech Mountain NC is just the kind of place that makes you want to stop for a while..
Even though Fred's has the feel of simpler times, he does have most anything you might need.. Groceries, hardware, flowers and plants, a deli, t-shirts, clothing, shoes, ski rentals in the winter. The slogan at Fred's is ""If you don't see it, ask for it...If we don't have it, you don't need it."
Fred and Margie Pfohl are the nicest people that
you will ever met.. On February 9, 1979, began the history of Fred's General Mercantile. Fred and Margie purchased a rectangle piece of property that was considered "useless", except for billboard advertisement, and transformed it into a thriving business.
The main store consists of a grocery store, hardware store, and clothing store. At Fred's they can outfit the entire family for a weekend vacation. The grocery is a fully stocked grocery store that carries everything from canned goods to gourmet foods. Try the homemade Toll House pie, it is the BEST - but you have to be quick - they get gone in a hurry !! Can you tell I love chocolate ???
In the hardware section we feature such quality items as Stanley tools, Laclede tire chains, and more screws, nails, nuts, and bolts then you can shake a stick at! The clothing section is filled with hundreds of T-shirts and sweatshirts, and we also carry high quality clothing from Columbia Sportswear, Woolrich, Alps, & Merrell.
Check out Fred's website, he even has an online store - now that's a country store revved up for this century ! Come and enjoy the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and Fred's Store on Beech... It's a blast from the past...
