Franklins General Store

General Store

Franklins General Store is housed in a landmark building which dates back to the 1880’s, originally as a blacksmith and carriage shop. Starting in 1910, the building housed the Hyattsville Hardware Co., which stayed in continuous operation until 1992. Franklins General Store and Deli opened in 1992 as a NY style deli, featuring 40 seats, great sandwiches, gifts, kitchen gadgets, beer, wine, toys, gourmet groceries, soaps, candy, cards and a WALL of hot sauce. With the completion of the Brewery in early 2002, the store expanded ALL these categories. A 2013 toy store addition now makes for over 30000 square feet of shopping space.

From Crabtree and Evelyn personal care products to Thomas the Tank Toys and more than a thousand types of beer and wine, our two decades of growth has made the store a destination best experienced in person. Open every day, our fun and knowledgeable staff is always ready to help you find the perfect gifts!
