In 1992 Ann and Peter O’Leary chose a different path. They left city life behind and opened an old timey general store in Chimney Rock, North Carolina. Their one-year-old yellow Labrador became the store’s mascot and spokes-person and Bubba O’Leary’s General Store was born. We are now on our 3rd Bubba and entering our 3rd decade and the store and life is better than ever!
We hope you visit soon and enjoy our little General Store located in the geographic center of beautiful Chimney Rock Village on the banks of the Rocky Broad River and in the shadow of the iconic Chimney Rock.
About The General Store
Step back in time and discover a simpler way to shop for everything from candies, collectibles and preserves to souvenirs, gifts & clothing from major brands you know and trust.
Nestled in the beautiful Hickory Nut Gorge is the charming Village of Chimney Rock – Home to Bubba O’Leary’s General Store & Outfitters. Surrounded by rocky cliffs and serenaded by the Rocky Broad River our little store sits just outside the entrance to Chimney Rock State Park. We are part of an old timey Village of over 40 quaint shops, restaurants, winery’s, brewery’s, bed and breakfasts, and charm.
Home town hospitality is what you will find along with treasures from local artisans and memories of a time gone by. The Rocky Broad Riverwalk is located right behind the store and the new Village Square is right next to us.
Several trails head out from the Village and there are many parks along the banks of the river, which rushes through the very heart of the Village.
