Forget your expectations of what a general store should be like.  We aim to be just as eclectic as the Vermonters are who make up this great state.  Skiing didn’t exist when Howard E. Shaw founded this store in 1895.  As the fifth generation of the family following in his footsteps, I often wonder what my Great-Great Grandfather would think of the store if he saw it today.  We may not sell the wood stoves he sold back then, but we still have the original floors he walked on and the countertop he stood behind day in and day out.  Here at Shaw’s we are committed to our customers that you will never find a shopping experience anywhere else quite like this.
