The store was updated to be more modern, but the draw of it for us was that it was old fashioned. My husband was bummed that they did not have the original Vidalia onion salad dressing, instead having a few variants of it.
The fudge was still there and the pralines were good, but the kitschy merchandise they used to have has been updated to more main stream tastes.

We spent 1/2 hour looking for this place and were looking forward to poking through lots of interesting stuff in a quirky setting. We finally realized that Smiths is no more. It is now called Coast convenience store. Very open spacious and sanitized. None of the unique old General Store experience left. They still have fudge and pralines, but not much else worth stopping in for. So disappointed.

Smith's Superstore is no longer called that and finding it was difficult. It is now called COAST and is located by the Exxon gas station on east side of I-95. I believe it was being renovated and while not complete it is nothing more than a glorified Circle K/Speedway convenience store. The people working there didn't even know what sodas were in the fountain soda area.

According to our research this was a must location to stop at. We had a time find it because the sign outside does not state Smith’s at all and it’s at a gas station location. It’s an interesting store with various finds. I’ve never seen so many flavors of fudge. I got half pound of Banana Pudding Fudge and Rocky Road for $7.95, 2 Pralines for $3.79 each and Jumbo Pecans for $10.99. Planning to return. The Fudge is amazingly delicious!

Can’t rate what isn’t there. So sad…Smith’s is no longer there. Coastal something is “coming soon”. Got a lot of yummy fudge, jams and jelly as well as some really great gifts, so sad to see it gone.

Walking into the store you are met with the sweetest aroma of freshly made pralines! They make them right there in the store daily!!! The pralines are sooo good! I only bought 5 because I didn’t know how well they’d travel across the country….I should have bought more! They were delicious and may have even gotten better after a couple of days. My mom got the turtles and said they were the best she’s had and my dad also enjoyed the fudge. Great place to stop for local treats. Thankfully they advertised on the highway or else we never would have stopped and we would have missed out.

Smith's is a landmark. They have the best pralines and excellent fudge. I never take a trip uo or down I95 without pulling off in Santee to stop at Smith's. The people working there are the nicest and most welcoming folks. I understand that the owner has sold it as she is retiring after working there since the age of 13 for her dad. It won't be the same under a new name, but I was assured that the pralines and fudge will remain world class!
