Bradley’s General Store will be celebrating its 125th year in business on Saturday, Sept. 21. The celebration will take place at the General Store from 10 a.m until 7 p.m.

During the celebration, Bradley’s will be having a prize drawing, with the winner being awarded a $125 gift certificate usable at the General Store. The winning contestant will be the one who is closest to correctly guessing the amount of buttons in the displayed jar. Enter the contest at the store any day or time during business hours before 5 p.m, on Sept. 21, which is when the drawing will end.  Spending at least $5.20 at the store gives customers a chance to win the drawing.

Along with the prize drawing, the store will be selling ice cream at a discounted price. Also, just like any party, there will be cake and balloons, so bring the family down for the celebration of a historic day at Bradley’s General Store.

Bradley’s General Store first opened in 1888 and is going stronger than ever 125 years later. With its wide variety of merchandise, ranging from local antiques to children’s toys, it’s easy to see why the store is a mainstay in Dillsboro.

“It’s truly amazing that this store has been around for 125 years,” said Rose Anne Johnson, owner of Bradley’s General Store.

“The town of Dillsboro has been great to the store and me, so we want to recognize them and the history of this store,” said Johnson.

Bradley’s General Store is located at 52 Front Street, Dillsboro, NC 28725. To learn more about the store, visit this link or call (828) 586-1888
