In 1924, Merricks General Wine Store (MGWS) opened, to serve a variety of needs to the local community. To this day, the well preserved building offers a glimpse into the past as a typical example of the rural general stores that were once such a central hub of community life. The charming rustic building, with gable bays & verandah, & a tree-shaded deck with outdoor fireplace, provides the kind of setting that somehow seems to infuse itself with the tastes on offer. Serving contemporary breakfast, lunch and snacks, the store is a popular meeting spot for many that also includes a produce store, selling a range of locally harvested jams, relishes and sauces.

In 1924, Merricks General Wine Store opened to serve a variety of needs of the local community.
