Family owned and operated since 1887, Alderson’s Store has been a go-to destination for generations of area residents. What began as a general merchandise store, now offers a more eclectic selection including clothing, vintage, jewelry, holiday and books. You never know what you might discover in this one-of-a-kind shop.
Conveniently located by the Alderson Memorial Walking Bridge. To access the south side of Alderson -- across the river -- follow Riverview Avenue to Howell Street. Turn left on Howell Street. Turn left on Railroad Avenue. Alderson's Store is located on S. Monroe Street where Railroad Avenue ends.
Historic Interest: Opened in 1887, the store originally carried general merchandise with every day sundries and supplies. In 1930, the store burned down and was relocated closer to what was once considered “midtown” Alderson… where it still stands. The “new” building façade and interior fixtures reflect the sleek and modern style of the day, known as Art Deco or Streamline Moderne. The display pieces were built by Georgia Showcase Company in 1932. Millinery tables, displays cases, dressing room… each piece was crafted to the specification of the space in which they still reside.
