We invite you to step back in time to the Brewster Store which still has all the charm of a nineteenth century general store. Located on Route 6A in Brewster, Massachusetts, the 156-year-old structure was built as a church in 1852. The building was converted to a general store in 1866 and has continued to serve the needs of the local residents and visitors to the Cape for more than 140 years.
Today, after five owners, The Brewster Store still features a broad, but unique assortment of merchandise—great coffee, pastries and morning newspapers, penny candy, t-shirts and sweatshirts, toys, hard-to-find lamp parts, kitchen gadgets, original Coke in glass bottles, books, greeting cards and many unusual gifts from the past and present. And yes, we still carry groceries and dairy products. Put a quarter in the old nickelodeon to hear an old time tune, enjoy some of our own roasted peanuts, or just sit on the benches in front of the store and watch the world go by. If you come by in the winter, warm yourself by the old coal stove.
We hope you enjoy your visit to our internet site; we happily invite you to visit the store when you are in Brewster. If, during a past visit to our Store, you saw items that are not featured on our site, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call (508-896-3744) and we will be happy to help you.

The pictorial history of the Brewster Store is now on display in the lower level of the Brewster Ladies Library until the week before Memorial Day when it returns to the walls of the Brewster scoop. The display includes many pictures from the store’s past displayed in five large frames, each depicting one of the periods of the ownership by each of the store’s five owners since 1866. All summer these history boards will be on display in the Brewster Scoop.
