Our new 5,000+ square foot showroom in Buzzards Bay, MA
Our original store in Mansfield, MA
For over 190 years, The Old Country Store and Emporium has been in continuous operation - originally in Mansfield, MA and now in Buzzards Bay on upper Cape Cod. When we first opened our doors, President Andrew Jackson, the 7th president of the United States, was sworn into office. President Jackson apparently shared our passion for the retail trade as he previously owned a general store in Gallatin, Tennessee himself!
During the years that followed, The Old Country Store and Emporium became the go-to destination for West Mansfield Village. We supplied our community with molasses, tea, coffee, meat, cheese, colonial hardware and more, and even acted as our town's local Post Office and information dispensary. A fire unfortunately destroyed the original structure, but the Mansfield General Store building was quickly reconstructed in 1899. In the 1960's and 1970's, the beloved Mansfield General Store saw the addition of many new rooms to accommodate the growing business derived from both townsfolk and travellers. Over the past 60+ years, we've tried to be faithful purveyors of old-tyme provisions, decorations, furniture, and elegant gifts that help make everyone's day a bit happier.
The Old Country Store and Emporium is a timeless treasure that has successfully evolved to meet the needs of each passing generation. We're proud to preserve this wonderful legacy, and we take pleasuring in providing our guests with high-quality home decor, clocks, artwork, furniture, gourmet food, jewelry, lighting and more. Although we've moved from our original 13-room General Store to Cape Cod, we still offer wonderful gifts and perfect items for your home, office or cottage. We hope you will enjoy the familiar tunes from our player piano, our old-fashioned candy counter and our delicious chocolates and fudge when you come to visit.
Our shop is conveniently located just over the Bourne Bridge at 134 Main Street, Buzzards Bay, MA between G&S Marine and the Bourne Fire Dept building. There is easy access from both RT. 3 and Rt. 495 - about 45 minutes from both Mansfield and Braintree. We are one street away from the Buzzards Bay Park which leads into the popular 10 mile walking & biking path along the Cape Cod Canal. Bike rentals are available directly across from our shop. Buzzards Bay Park also offers a panoramic view of the Cape Cod Railroad Bridge which offer both excursion and special event tours from Buzzards Bay and Hyannis. We are two streets away from the Massachusetts Maritime Academy in an area that offers shopping, dining, ice cream shop, museum and other vacation attractions. As always, Old Country Store and Emporium will offer our guests a wonderful visit or day trip throughout the four seasons. We appreciate your support of our historical New England country store and we look forward to welcoming you to our new home in the weeks ahead!
