We're not only are we America's highest General Mercantile at an elevation of 5049', but we are located in Eastern America's Highest Town at an elevation of 5506'. Open 365 days a year, we are a store and a town devoted to serving the needs of visitors, skiers, snowboarders, summer folks, and locals alike.
If you are of an age that you can remember how each small town or village always had a general store that served as the center of the community, you will especially enjoy our store with its vast variety of goods for just about any need you may have. If you are younger and don't remember about general stores, you too will enjoy visiting with us for the experience that a trip to Fred's will bring to you.
