One of my favorite places to visit in the fall is Fred's General Mercantile located on Beech Mountain. Beech, as we call it, is Eastern America's Highest Town at an elevation of 5506'.
Celebrating it's 30th year, Fred's is open 365 days a year, and they claim that if they don't have it then you don't need it! I like to pick up pumpkins, decorative corn, gourds and fall decorations here - the prices are great.
The store serves the needs of visitors, skiers, snowboarders, summer folks, and locals alike. Remember when each small town or village always had a general store that served as the center of the community? This is what visiting Fred's brings to mind. They carry food, hardware, clothing, pet supplies, bird feeders, videos to rent, books, seasonal decorations, and so much more. And they even have a deli to grab a bite for lunch while in the area.
During the summer months they offer free concerts on the green next to the store featuring local music. It is a long and steep drive up the mountain, but well worth the visit! For more info go to Fred's General Mercantile.
