General Store – Well Established in Maine

Price: $3,500,000

Location: Coastal Maine

Industry: Food and Restaurants

Listing ID: CM1122021

Located in a high-end coastal tourist town, this world-famous general store is the must-visit place for visitors from all over the world! While you’re there, you may well rub elbows with the rich and famous – actors, corporate big-wigs, politicians – you just never know.

Built in 1865, the well-appointed historic building is more than just a successful business and stunning two-story home. It is the place to be, to work, to own. This is the place you need to buy before some else does or you will be kicking yourself saying “I had the perfect chance and I let it slip through my fingers!” 

Fair warning – the time is now and this is the one – don’t let it get away!

The store features a great deli, tempting bakery and has a full liquor license to keep locals and tourist alike well watered and fed.

They specialize in fine wines from California – and this is a community where people think nothing of spending $300 on a bottle.

In addition to a Café that has several small tables (except during COVID restrictions – which are beginning to be lifted) to enjoy your coffee, freshly made sandwich or any of the menu offerings. In spite of the modern offerings, the store maintains its quaint 1865 character. It looks like something that would fit right into a Hollywood movie about a coastal town in the Civil War era.

There is a magnificently renovated two-story apartment above the store. The sellers spared no expense in making this a beautiful home – from the Viking stove in the gourmet kitchen right down to the gorgeous gas fireplace and deck with a water view.

The sale price of $3.5M is all-inclusive. You’ll own the historic building, including the luxury living quarters above and a historic truck, branded with the company’s logo that draws a lot of eyes when you drive around town or ride in parades.

This is nothing like your average general store. You are not just buying a business – you’re buying a beautiful home and a lifestyle that will make you the envy of everybody you know!
