Country Junction  “World’s Largest General Store”

After more than 13 years, since their catastrophic fire, Country Junction “World’s Largest General Store”
is looking forward to growing their store to almost the original size.
 The 150,000 sq. ft. original building was leveled in 2006, and about 50,000 sq. ft. was opened in 2010. 
The new addition will add another 50,000 + sq. ft. of family oriented adventure as they navigate the
Yellow Brick Road”.
Country Junction has always been about FAMILY.  Keeping with the nostalgia of the old store, the new
addition will offer more hands on interactive activities for kids and parents and grandparents.  “Families
are always bringing family and friends to Country Junction as a tradition.  It’s makes for a wonderful day trip
filled with memories”, says Jim Everett.
Many factors were involved in their decision to build.  “We increasingly see a need for family oriented
experiences.  Our Escape rooms, Laser Tag and Nerf Arena have been steadily growing.  We’ll be introducing new
 directions to include family participation, such as themed parties, Events and more festivals,” says Jan Everett. 
“Hence the new COUNTRY JUNCTION VILLAGE, which hosted it’s first major event ,The Great Pocono Pumpkin
Festival, in October.”   More festivals are planned throughout the year.
As always, the “streets” in the new addition will be filled with unusual and always changing treasures. 
The pet store, one of the stores most popular departments will be expanded.  A dog washing station,
where you can wash your dog yourself is in the works, and grooming is available.  And, of course, man’s
best friend is always invited to visit the store.
Kids love the “red buttons”.  There will be more interactive activities added and the beloved original
theater will be recreated.  There will always be activities offered for kids in new the  expanse, such as
 pumpkin painting, crafts and room for groups who want to showcase their talents. 
Parties are always a hit  at Country Junction.  The pirate ship, and the new Country Junction Village,
along with the new addition, offers a number of locations for parties, anniversaries, and reunions.
The original store, which included Ashley furniture, will now find a home again.  “For years, our
customers have been asking to bring back the furniture department, and we are glad we now
have the space to do this”. 
Along with the much favored “Barn door Restaurant” there’s an Ice Cream Parlor.
Of course, Sorrenti’s Wine Cellar, award winning wine, made right here in Saylorsburg, PA, offers wine tasting.
Country Junction roasts their own peanuts and make their peanut butter on the premises, and the
new Bakery boasts cookies and treats and pies, all made from scratch, even the crusts.
The Street corner Candy is always a favorite.  Fudge is also made right in the store and offers customers free
samples to satisfy their sweet tooth.
Then there’s the FREE PETTING FARM, where kids can pet an alpaca, and feed the ducks, chickens, and
enjoy the guinea hens scoot around the property.  Kids can play in the playground, negotiate the race
track, and build sand castles.  Kids will love the always present characters on weekends.
Many more ideas are floating around as Country Junction continues it’s  journey to make Country Junction you’re
destination for the best family fun and great memories.
It’s a Wonderful World!
