Historic Thompson’s Store–the oldest grocery store in the state of North Carolina!
This family-owned business was founded in 1890, and moved to its current location in 1940. In recent years, our old-timey grocery store has expanded its famous full-service meat market and added a delicious deli section, along with new selections of wine, beer, cheese, and fresh produce.
We are also famous for our official Coon Dog Day merchandise, featuring t-shirts, ball caps and visors, sweatshirts, and more.
Don’t forget to pop in next door at our sister business Ward’s Grill for a down-home hearty breakfast, or a lunch featuring our popular chili cheeseburgers and handspun milkshakes so thick you might need a spoon!
