Our store is devoted exclusively to local products with a focus on the Pacific Northwest. Eighty-five percent of our products come from Washington, 10% from Oregon, and 1% each from Utah and Montana. A large portion of our Washington products are made within two hours of Seattle.

We wish to make it as easy as possible for our customers to put their money back into their local economies. Studies have shown that money spent at local businesses and on local products sticks around in local circulation longer, contributing to local schools, jobs, taxes, wages, and other communal needs. For every $100 spent, $45 is redistributed into the community as compared to just $14 at big chain stores.”

We call ourselves a “general store” because it harkens back to boom-town general stores that functioned as the cultural epicenter around which the town’s community would gather. People came by regularly and often hung out to talk about the issues (or gossip) of the day. In this vein, we want to return to our American roots – the idea that we, within our communities, can be self sustainable instead of the current model that stretches product production and consumption across the globe. This current system harms everyone involved, from the producers, to the workers, to the consumers.

We wish to change that. We believe that everyone can benefit and even prosper by returning to our self-sustainable and community-oriented roots.

Our goal is to expand into a one-stop shop for everything local – from fertilizer to canoe oars to first aid to furniture. Eventually we plan on expanding to other cities as well and have those stores be local to the areas they’re in. We want to make it as easy as possible for everyone to “live life local.”

The General Store Seattle

We are absolutely thrilled to announce to the world our new retail venture, The General Store Seattle. We at the General Store believe in giving our customers an easy and efficient way to make thoughtful purchasing decisions. We do this by providing goods that only come from local, regional, and national suppliers.

 

Handpicked

All of our products, including food, household items, body products, clothing and accessories, and more, are hand-picked by us from US producers with a focus on the Pacific Northwest. Over time, this will improve not only our economy but also our self-sufficiency as a region.

 

Come Visit

Our first brick and mortar hub is located in the up-and-coming neighborhood of West Seattle as part of the ActivSpace complex at 3400 Harbor Ave SW. Inventory will be sold both in person and online so that customers who wish to put their hard-earned money directly back into their communities can shop in our store, pick up online orders, or receive bike or mail carrier delivery.
