A martini is a terrible thing to waste.

Jonesville Country Store.

I was surprised to see a sign on the Northway that listed “The Jonesville Store” as a food vendor off exit 10.  I thought it couldn’t possibly be the former Jonesville Country Store that had been closed for years.

When I was a kid my mother would take us for car rides on summer evenings and we’d stop at the Jonesville Country Store for ice cream bars.  I remember the inside resembling how I had imagined a saloon to appear.

I took this photograph of the Jonesville Country Store after it had been closed for several years.  I’m not sure when it reopened, but it looks like the store has its own web site and TV commercial.  Apparently there’s also a gift shop upstairs that sells necklaces and afghans, so you know it no longer resembles anything close to a saloon.

    Was there a couple of weeks ago; kick ass breakfast and baked good items. Really cool decor inside. If you’re looking for unique items for christmas, stop in and have a snack and buy some items.

    40 + years ago my brothers and i would walk to the country store for penny candy. It was actually a penny then.Mr. and Mrs. Noyce ran it for years. Since ,it has had many reincarnations, the latest seems very succesful. I always get nostalgic when I go by.

    No, but the pancakes are to die for. They truly melt in your mouth and make all other pancakes taste like mouse pads.

    I can almost see the store from my back porch. I love it over there, and I am so glad they fixed it up and opened it.
