The General Store Seattle: New WSB sponsor; sale this weekend!

The General Store Seattle: New WSB sponsor; sale this weekend!

March 13, 2015 at 12:59 pm | In West Seattle businesses, West Seattle news

“Today we’re welcoming The General Store Seattle as a new WSB sponsor. New local sponsors get the chance to let you know what they’re all about:

The General Store Seattle focuses exclusively on US-made, locally produced items that are unique and hand-picked with an eye for quality, says proprietor Claire E. Jones (at right). “Our customers continually praise the high quality of our products and they love that their money is going directly back into their communities. They seek us out because they know they can find one-of-a-kind items that more than replace the lower-quality products found at big box retail chains.”

Claire says The General Store Seattle is inspired by the traditional general stores – some clothes, some household goods, some food-related items, all locally sourced, with her suppliers at most a few hours away from Seattle. Sourcing locally can get expensive sometimes, but Claire works to do the research necessary for you to be able to shop with The General Store Seattle and find merchandise at fair prices.

This weekend, The General Store Seattle has a special sale – 5% of your purchase will be donated to the charity of your choice. Go here to get full details.

The General Store Seattle is open Wednesdays-Sundays, 10 am-7 pm, on the street level at 3400 Harbor SW (map) – and you can shop any time via the store’s website, atthegeneralstoreseattle.com.

We thank The General Store Seattle for sponsoring independent, community-collaborative neighborhood news via WSB; find our current sponsor team listed in directory format here, and find info on joining the team by going here.

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.



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.
