Shaw's General Store is as eclectic as the Vermonters who make up this great state. Skiing in Stowe did not exist when Howard E. Shaw founded this store in 1895. As the fifth generation following in his footsteps, we often wonder what he would think if he saw it today. We may not sell the wood stoves he sold back then, but we still have the original floors he walked on and the countertop he stood behind day in and day out. And we are committed to the same Vermont country store welcome and values. You will never find a shopping experience quite like this anywhere else.
