The General Store & Co.

7922 Santa Fe Drive, Overland Park

As a name, the General Store & Co. is almost suspiciously generic, like a front for something nefarious. Venture inside the downtown Overland Park shop, and confusion mounts. Where is the toilet paper? Where are the Slim Jims? Why does it smell so ... so nice in here? Is that a wallet made from a necktie? Wait, what is this place? The General Store & Co. is not general at all. It's hyper-curated. Owner Michael Cole stocks the place with whatever he thinks is cool. Much is local: postcards from Hammerpress, Tallgrass Toffee, a throw pillow emblazoned with the names of Kansas City neighborhoods. The rest is tasteful and boutiquelike: Malin + Goetz beauty products, Graf & Lantz handbags, Stonewall Kitchen marmalades and salsas. Oh, you realize as you tote your charming new purchases from the shop, that's actually kind of a clever name.
