Overview
More
On the eastern slope of Grandfather Mountain rests a country store that has claimed the site at Blue Moon Gap since the early 1920s. Generations of mountain people have bought groceries, hardware, and automobile products at the little store that was once known as Blue Moon Station and is now Grandfather Country Store. It has had some changes, but remains ever "The Country Store" to the locals.

When we lost our way to Rough Ridge off the Blue Ridge Parkway, and stopped to ask for directions at the quaint and homey looking Grandfather Country Store, little did we realise that the owner of the store who was guiding us was the award...More
