In 1998 Red Hill General Store online was established in the rural
mountains of Southwest Virginia. It was named after the now closed
country store in Dugspur, Virginia. We became excited about the
idea of an online store that would sell trusted goods found in
old-time community hardware stores. We were the first pioneers
bringing back these superior simple-living hard-to-find items
to the customer online.
The business was smaller in every way: fewer people, fewer products
and less space.
Red Hill General Store's inherited expertise fueled an array
of practical retail websites. Today we operate multiple sites
and take pride in passing know-how to our customers. As a small
business our service is meaningful and we're small enough (to
holler to Kandy in shipping across the building, for example)
to guarantee efficient service, quality goods and trust we once
demanded from product suppliers in this country.
In 2006 Red Hill General Store moved out of its first location
and onto Sylvatus Highway. The buildings were once home to triangle
furniture. It was a major milestone.
Red Hill General Store had room to grow.
In November 2009, beside office headquarters Red Hill General
Store opened it's first retail store. It was our second major
milestone - making the leap from the internet to the retail world
- and everyone was involved in the process. Red Hill General Store
filled with simple old-time remedies that make life easier, hard-to-find
supplies for farms or gardens, comfortable clothing, and practical
supplies for living.
In 2011 the second Retail Store opened in Raleigh, NC. To learn

Not many authentic general stores are left -- but the thrill
and experience of visiting Red Hill General Store will take you
back. It is our prideful pleasure to provide convenient and affordable
groceries (like eggs and beef from our
family farm) raised the old-fashioned way on small local farms
to a regional food shead. Our shelves are filled with a wondrous
variety of hard-to-find items, old-fashioned candy, trusted brands,
and genuine products still practical today!
Hillsville's only local hardware store announced in early 2019 they would no longer be selling hardware. After this news and with thoughtful consideration, Red Hill General Store decided to purchase most of their hardware stock, the key making machine, and added many new items to existing merchandise.
Red Hill believes independent hardware stores in small towns are critical to a healthy local economy. When it comes to hardware stores, service and selection still mean something.
With loads of new hardware inventory, your neighbors at Red Hill General Store hope you will think of us the next time you need things for projects and repairs.
Red Hill General Store is a business, a building,
a way of life, and a family. Through the years technology, people,
buildings and culture have changed. How people are treated and how
to conduct honest business is the same and we're always working
for ways to make it better.
