Brewster Store

Brewster Store on Old Cape Cod Welcomes You!

StorefrontWe 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 or give us a call (508-896-3744) and we will be happy to help you.
