General Store

We think John Henry’s General Store is very cool. The original store was founded on
this site in the 1940’s. Since the business was purchased in July 2015 by Allyson Nelson & Richard Gaudreau a lot of work has been done on the store, both physically and in terms of the variety of merchandise available.

Provisions for our neighbours, boaters, campers and guests arriving in Garden Bay
throughout the year can be found inside the store.

Store Hours

Summer: 9am — 8pm, 7 days a week
(June 1 through Labour Day)

Winter: 10am — 6pm, 7 days a week
