Putney VT General Store Combines Traditional Items with Chinese Food
From general store to General Gau’s chicken, the Putney General Store in Putney , Vt., combines the unusual mix of a traditional local Vermont community gathering place with Chinese food!
Don’t let the traditional Vermont country store exterior fool you. Here is a place that not only features traditional general store grocery items, a deli, beer and wine, and local produce and products (like maple syrup and cheeses), but also an extensive Chinese menu with many items coming in at under $10.! Nice that there is indoor and outdoor dining to enjoy this type of cuisine that is not all too common in Putney and the surrounding area.
The Putney General Store reopened under this new format after, sadly, suffering through two separate fires. Amazingly, the Putney Historical Society and local residents raised nearly $1m to bring this landmark store back to life. The store’s traditional retail template — that goes all the way back to the 1700s — has remained, but it sure is nice to have the option of Chinese food in a place where you wouldn’t expect this type of food!
The Putney General Store is located at 4 Kimball Hill Rd., in Putney, Vt. Tel. 1-802-387-4592
