Established in 1984, John Brown opened up a fruit stand with just a few boxes of produce and grocery items. After 7 years, John sold the business and struck out to spread his wings in the restaurant business founding J & J (John and Joan) cafeteria in King, NC. 5 years later, John and Joan decided to semi retire and live a much slower pace. It didn't take long for John and son "Tic" to get the itch to find another store location. That's when John and Tic came across the current location. John passed away in October of '98 and Tic as been running the business ever since.
John Brown's Country Store takes you back to the good ole days-a time when people traded stories and spent afternoons watching the world from the front porch. Our wide selection of jams and jellies, old fashioned candies, fresh produce, local honey, snack mixes, and homemade items like our signature pimento cheese, cole slaw, chili, potato salad, chicken salad, and macaroni salad promises to be a delightful taste that keeps you coming back for more.
