Here are 4 reasons to shop at the Ogle Brothers General Store the next time you’re in town.
1. The History
Ogle Brothers General Store was created to pay homage to the Ogle family that first purchased the land in the 1920’s. Dr. John W. Ogle and his wife Blanche raised their family on the farm and instilled in them traditional family values that remain today. As soon as you walk into the store you’ll see a timeline that includes photographs of the history of the family and the property. By all means, shop til you drop, but make sure you also take time to immerse yourself in the story of the Smokies while you’re visiting.

They have candles named after the best parts of the Great Smoky Mountains, trail sign replicas, fun Smokies themed items for the kids, stickers, clothing, and much more. They also have a line of culinary treats based on the family farm and the history of the area, pick up some soup mix, local coffee, or a jar of salsa. The possibilities of stocking up on all things Smokies are endless, you’ll see and you’ll love it!
3. High-Quality Shopping
Ogle Brothers General Store not only offers fun souvenirs and down home items but they also have a great selection of high-quality brands as well. You’ll find Eno, United by Blue, Oncloud, Kavu, Darn Tough, Prana, Duke Cannon, and other brands during your time browsing the store.
4. The Experience
A trip to the Ogle Brothers General Store is far more than just stopping in to shop, it’s a full experience. The Ogle brothers wanted to create a place of tradition and fellowship. The store is filled with great items but it’s the energy and the opportunities that truly make it a place that you’ll want to return to time after time. Guests can sample items, observe their on-site potter creating his pottery, stop in next door at Cruze Farm for an ice cream cone and kick back in a rocking chair or a porch swing as they take in views of the Smokies. If you need dinner before shopping, dine at the Five Oaks Farm Kitchen that’s also located next to the store. The restaurant is also based on the same family history and provides the opportunity to truly soak up life in the Smokies.
