It’s Revolutionary!


COVID-19 Update From The WGS – Summer Edition

Due to the current state of the world, and in order to continue to keep our customers and staff as safe as we can, we have made some new changes to our hours of operation and the way we conduct business.

Beginning June 23, 2020 we will reopen our doors to walk in customers!

To help facilitate social distancing, we will have a limit of 5 customers in the store at any one time.  

When you arrive at The WG, please give yourself an extra minute to stop by the Sanitization Station and grab a mask and/or a squirt of sanitizer. You can even read the rules of entry!

Hours of Operation:

Monday – Saturday:  8:00 am – 7:00 pm

Closed Sunday

Home Deliveries on Wednesday & Friday: noon – 6pm

Additional Services:

Curbside pick-up
Call in your order during our regular hours and pay over the phone.
Tell us when you’ll be here and we’ll bring it right out to your car.

Home Delivery
Between the hours of Noon and 6pm we will bring anything we make
or carry to your door. Delivery is FREE within 10 miles of the store
as long as your order is over $25. If under $25 there will be a $5
charge. Anything over 10 miles away will have a $10 delivery charge
tacked on. Prepayment over the phone is greatly encouraged.

Food & Drinks

We’re proud to offer a range of food from local Maine farms both packaged and in our pre-made menu items, take-out food & special order items. We also offer a variety of local beers, wines and spirits that you can take out or drink here at the store along with your meal. The WGS offers a small grocery area as well where you’ll find fresh veggies and fruits, your favorite packaged items and other yummy treats.

Being a real, old fashioned Maine general store, the WGS is, above all, a community gathering space for our small town. Locals and visitors alike come here to catch up over a meal or a cup of coffee. We also have live music and other special events from time to time. In addition, The Washington General Store is grateful to be able to offer our support to community organizations including our school, library, and town projects.
