Thank you for shopping local!

We make sure that every visit to The Mill District General Store is an amazing

in-person experience. When you walk inside, you are welcomed by our friendly staff and our huge candy by the pound counter.  Bet you can't have just one piece!


Nostalgic, Modern & More
We stock a mix of nostalgic and modern products, art supplies, home goods, kitchenware, pet supplies, toys and games, skincare and beauty products, home and bath necessities, and seasonal clothing. We also have an ever-growing supply of beautiful local items from Western Massachusetts.

Can you smell the coffee?

Just past our main counter you will find a coffee station where you can pour & purchase a cup of locally roasted coffee from Esselon Coffee Roasters in Hadley, MA and then take a stroll through the Local Art Gallery to view the work of over 20 local artists who create pottery, paintings, jewelry, and more!

Featured Storywalk Book

¡El Mosquito! by Angel Nieto

The best thing about walkable North Amherst is what you find along the way! Visit The Mill District Storywalk, along the Julius Lester Trail, featuring locally written and illustrated children's books. The trail begins at the back left corner of the Mill River Recreation Area and continues all the way to Puffer's Falls, with the Storywalk along the first half of the trail. 

Sign up for the General Store mailing list to stay clued in to Storywalk author walks, book signings, story hours, and so much more. You can also find a great selection of locally written and illustrated books at the General Store...including this one!
