General Store

The General Store is a casual marketplace stirring that unmistakable vacation-day feeling. After all, adventures often begin with a full tank of gas and snacks for the road.

Browsing for a smile? Unique jewelry styles and decorative conversation pieces cover the General Store’s shelves and dangle from its eaves. To tailor a gift to a friend or a theme, hand-pick a combination of items for a gift basket, wrapped with all the fixings by General Store attendants. Wire baskets wedged with classic goodies and gourmet pantry items complete the nostalgic shopping revival. Look for Walker’s Bluff’s signature products, like sweet preserves.

In 2009, A legendary storm bent the better part of southern Illinois. Sheets of wind devastated the 56-year home of Nettie Jenkins, who suggested Walker’s Bluff rehab her land for a proper “front door” to the growing complex. Walker’s Bluff agreed, and the General Store extends a neighborly welcome in Jenkin’s stead.
