Edward and Katheryn Washburn’s store has been in the news more than once. In operation since the 1800’s it’s one of the last true mercantile stores in Western Carolina. Stop in for a treat, you can buy a soda pop, a wood cook stove, or a butter churn, cast iron pots and pans, Pointer brand overall’s, jeans, hats and more stuff than you can shake a stick at. Take your friends down for a root beer and a chunk of hoop cheese. Incidentally, they sell hoop cheese boxes, the round wooden ones, if you’re interested. (828) 245-4129
Sammy Greene, also known as: the best butcher in the county, runs the grocery across from the Bostic Post Office.
