Picture an old-time general store. Call it a "mercantile,” or maybe an “emporium.” Whatever name you prefer, it harkens back to a time of “simple life” pleasures such as penny candies in glass jars, rows of colorful fabrics, and the aroma of freshly ground coffee. How nice it would be to step back in time to experience that just for a little while. Well, here at the Canacadea Country Store, you can do just that. We are proud to be carrying on a classic American Tradition.
Originally built as a general store in 1858, this quaint, terra cotta-topped structure endured virtually unchanged for a century and a year. It sat vacant for about three years and then was reopened as a gift shop in the early 1960s. A little over two decades later, the store was purchased by Don and Sandy Cameron, who expanded the merchandise to include high quality specialty items. Yet, all the while they have maintained the true ambience of a charming country store, where all who enter are warmly greeted. As the sign on our counter says: Delighted You’re Here!

The sights and sounds will transport you back to another era. Over three levels, you’ll stroll on creaking, well-worn, original hardwood floors past old wooden showcases, glass candy jars, the vintage coffee mill, and literally thousands of unique and high quality gift items for your family, your friends, and yes, you.

Sure, our penny candies cost a little more these days, but the Canacadea Country Store experience is one that is priceless.

Candy
In some ways it feels like turning back the clock when you walk into the Canacadea County Store. We have a wide variety of old-time hard and soft jar candies and 8 delicious varieties of cordials. We are proud to offer Wellsville, NY-based Cretekos specialty chocolates, which come in a variety of interesting shapes and sizes, as well as Alfred Honey Pot chocolates, which are sweetened with, of course, fresh honey. This little-known Alfred, NY enterprise has been in business since 1922.

Whatever you're looking for, we have something to satisfy anyone's sweet tooth!
