Interesting visit of a historic general store. 7$ for self tour or 11$ for a guided tour with detailed explanation. Worth the stop if you like antiques and history.

Built in 1928 to replace the original general store from late 1700 / early 1800's, Charles the owner is amazing teller of historical stories of the Candler and Perce area. Fluently bilingual, the fact he is the son of the final operating owner gives him...More

Nice general store filled with old objects and stories. Passionate owners make the past come back alive. Not hip, not moderne but very enjoyable when you take some time to imagine what the past was like.

Staff and owners were very friendly. Neat history of cod fishing in the region. Some great information and exhibits. A little expensive considering size of the site but understandable as they likely don't get huge crowds. Worthwhile if you are in the vicinity.

A guided tour by the original founder's grandson can really bring a historic site to life. It was very interesting to hear the story of the General Store from the family's viewpoint.

The tour was only available in French so we paid the lower fee for the self guided tour. However, the owner (son of the last actual store owner) came and spent time with my husband and I and explained a number of the artifacts. You...More
