Interesting store but way overpriced! Owners are rude and the price of food is through the roof!!!! Our party consisted of 4 people of which we ordered sandwiches and drinks. We each got a small dessert. The food at best was ok and all was served on throw away plates and cutlery. Imagine our surprise when the bill the owner rang up was $80.00???????
Owners were very snippy with us when we questioned the bill. They also demanded we tip the band that we had no idea would be there.
Chased us to the parking lot until we tipped the band.
I won't return!!!!

The owners of the old general store are only here for the tourist. They have told the locals they don't want their busness. They are from Florida and DO NOT have anything in common with the local folk. I use to love to take friends and family to the store when we had visitors. Not anymore. I rather drive to West Jefferson or Boone to show how people will make you feel welcome and to come back anytime for a visit. Never seen a place charge to use the restroom in my life.

I thought I was the only person that finds the owner of the Todd General Store to be rude and greedy. I wanted to support our local businesses so I purchased lunch there. When I return two days later to have the same lunch, the price went up significantly. The Todd General Store appears to randomly charge their customers, and with a rude attitude to boot! The signs in their store demanding that customer buy their wares and not just browse is odd at best. The owner and his wife appear to be residents of Florida (their car has Florida license plates) who do business seasonally until October in Todd, NC, and are not locals themselves. As a result, they are not familiar with the local customs of southern hospitality, friendliness, and honest dealings with people. When you cheat and mistreat your customers, they won't come back!!! It's sad to see another small business fail during the recession.

I agree with some of the previous comments. The owner of this store is very rude. He needs to be in a business where there is no public contact. This was our first visit and last. The bathroom says for "cusomers only". Well, you would think browsing the store for 20 min. and buying a drink would make you a customer. Not to this owner. As we were leaving, the owner asked my husband for a tip for the bathroom. It got him off guard, but he said he would, even though someone in our group had bought a drink. The owner went crazy. Told him to get out of the store. Then the owner told all of us to get off his porch. As we were walking down the steps in astonishment, he came back out the door and hollered for us to get out of his parking lot. We had children with us too. What an example he was setting. I'm sure there are some very nice people in the town of Todd, but this man is a bad reflection.

While vacationing from Florida several times during the last twenty years, I have gone out of my way to visit Todd General Store and until my most recent and final visit I would have strongly recomended it. But the current owners seem to be in the wrong business. The store is now full of posted off-putting rules and regulations which seem anything but customer friendly. If you want to use the restroom without making a purchase it costs $1. If you want to charge a purchase of less than $20 it costs $2. No shoplifting -- watch your kids -- and, oh yeah, no photos! When my wife purchased some overpriced just-baked still-hot cookies from the owner's wife, the owner seemed pissed that his wife wasn't unloading the overpriced cookies left over from the day before instead. Not that my wife would have purchased same. I wish I could say we used the restroom without paying to do so or making a purchase instead. But I can say that we won't return.

What about the local people? The owners want local people to come to the store, but how can we afford it. It would be nice to be able to run to the store to pick up milk, bread, and whatever you might need in the spear of the moment. The prices are way to high, almost $5.00 for a gallon of milk (if they even still carry it). This is not the Mast Store folks! Think about the locals and you might get some daily business from us. And treat us with respect.

Meet your friends here to begin the miles long bike ride along the river. When you return to the Todd store, treat yourself to one of their Reubin sandwiches and homemade brownies. You can take your lunch across the street to the Gazebo/bandbox alongside the river and have a picnic.
Check Todd website for summer concerts and festivals.

If you're looking for a great old-time general store, the Todd General Store is the place for you! They have a great assortment of old-timey country goods and crafts. I bought a cinnamon broom, and it's sweet smell reminds me of all the good times we had in the mouintains!

This Little country store is great to visit. You feel as though you have been taken back in time to the days when the little country store was the town's favorite meeting place. This store is a definite tourist attraction must, and well worth the visit.
