    1. As a matter of fact I do Joey. I have 256s in Otter in stock. They’ll be on the site shortly. I’ll be adding Canada as a shipping destination today and once I do that just add the 256 to your cart, fill in your address and you’ll see the shipping cost.

  1. Yes they will Joey. Your best bet if you don’t see it on the site is to call the store. We can order it in and I’ll be willing to wager that you’ll like the price you get quoted too. Remember we like to haggle. 1-573-254-3311

  2. Hello
    I purchased some Lee jeans a few years back at your store and can not find them any place. Do you have Lee-Regular Cut-35 Waist/32 Inseam in stock?
    I can either drive out (about 2 hours from my house) or we could do business online if you like. I appreciate your help.
    Thank you,
    Michael

    1. Michael, yes we have the Lee jeans. Check out our website again. We just added them to the Shoppe part.

  3. I was just there yesterday and purchased a carhartt coat as a gift and some coveralls for my son, the person I bought the gift for doesn’t want it but I realized the coat doesn’t have a tag, and I of course told the salesman yesterday I didn’t need a receipt, is it possible to bring the coat in today and just exchange it for the large black carhartt I saw yesterday for myself?

  4. Are you able to ship the Amish Made jams and Jellies? I didn’t see them on your online store. We normally stop in when we travel from Denver to Indiana, however we haven’t been through in a while and would love to purchase some of this wonderful Jelly from you. Also what would shipping cost?
    Thanks

    1. Unfortunately spammers use legitimate names of people and businesses to try to scam people. We have nothing to do with it and there is nothing we can do to prevent it. Be assured it did not come from us.

  5. Hi,
    I’m a professionally trained researcher/historian researching material for a book I’m writing about current active General Stores or Country Stores within the United States. My purpose for focusing on these types of stores is to acquaint people with the fact that so many of these businesses are a focal point within communities and therefore allow for local people and travelers to have a place not only to buy goods but also to gather local news about the area they live in or are visiting.
    I would like to have some information about your business so that I may include it in my book. Please know there is no charge for placement in the book.
    If you are interested, can you answering the following:
    1. What is the name of your business and its address, zip code and State?
    2. When (what year) did your business begin to function within the community?
    3. Has your business been in the family and if so, for how long?
    4. Can you tell me the story behind why your business opened?
    5. What products are carried within your store (food, clothing, antiques, Americana items such as quilts, for example).
    6. Does your business also contain a Post Office?
    7. Does your business also provide services for vehicles (gas pump, for instance)
    8. Is your business located near a National or State Park, and if so, what is the name of the Park?
    9. Is there anything else you would like to share about your business which might be of interest to readers or to people who travel within your geographic area?
    10. Do you have a photo showing your business that you would like placed in the book?
    Thanks for taking the time to read this letter. Should you have any questions, please know that you can contact me: Jean Giaimis

      2. When (what year) did your business begin to function within the community? We started in 1899 in a town of Mineola, Missouri which is about 6 miles away. My grandfather came back from WWI and bought into a store in Williamsburg on the Boone’s Lick Trail in 1924. He then built the building we are in now 1 block South on the “new” US Highway 40. We have been in this location since 1926

      6. Does your business also contain a Post Office? No – it’s across the street.
      7. Does your business also provide services for vehicles (gas pump, for instance) Yes, we sell gas and diesel
      8. Is your business located near a National or State Park, and if so, what is the name of the Park? We have Whetstone Wildlife area about 2 miles behind our store (Missouri State Conservation Area) and we have Graham Cave State Park 6 miles East of us.
