From popcorn to plows it's at Rocky Top Store

HARRIMAN - The merchandise sitting on the front porch of Rocky Top General Store only hints at what's inside.

Before even entering the door, a visitor walks by Radio Flyer wagons, garden tillers, rolls of chicken wire, and 50 pound bags of rabbit food stacked head high.

Inside, the sensory assault continues with the smell of fresh popcorn, which store owner David Webb offers free to his customers.

On the walls just below the ceiling hang antique farm tools- bow saws, push mowers and plows- and at the back of the room, past the Case © knives and cast-iron cook stoves, there’s an old-fashion drink machine that sells bottled Cokes.

“Unusual items - that’s what we pride ourselves in,” Webb said.

As a descriptive label, the “general” in Rocky Top General Store barely scratches the surface.

Located just south of the Emory River in Harriman, the store sells hardware, poultry products, and pet supplies, as well as furniture, appliances, and canvas work clothes.

Coon hunters frequent the store to buy dog supplies, and housewives come into browse among the display cases stocked with ceramic dolls and giftware.
