Avery's has a little bit of everything. Fresh produce, a deli counter, clothing, hardware, camp gear, toys, kitchen equipment, etc. It's an old building and that alone gets my attention since I love old buildings. Being an old building and carrying so many supplies, the...More

Worth stopping if just to visit an old time village store with wood floors. Everything you might ever need is here including fresh local produce. Great just to browse.

This place is amazing, they have everything. Whether you want a good steak some winter boots or some nails they have it. It's a rare thing that one place has both hardware, food and clothing and nice helpful staff to boot.

I lived in Charlemont until age 9. I went back for a visit last week and Avery's store is still the same. They really do have everything you need and more. Plus you HAVE to try their homemade sausage. It is SO good!

If you want an old fashioned shopping experience, stop at Avery's. Snow shovels, sand pails, screws, nails, flyswatters, and steak for dinner. Avery's has it all. It's a delight!

Wow, pretty rare to see a real general store these days, but this is the real McCoy! It has everything on shelves, hanging above you and in every little nook and cranny: hardware, school supplies, paints, canned foods, deli, fresh meats, and just about anything...More
