Wreck Cove General Store
The Wreck Cove General Store was opened in 1976, and was
taken over in 2014 by a young Ontario couple living the Cape
Breton dream. We are located on the Cabot Trail at Wreck Cove,
on beautiful Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.
Our store is open year-round; we close only on Christmas Day
and New Year's Day!
We offer grocery basics, little necessities for the camper and
traveller, fuel, fresh coffee, and local information. We also stock
a nice selection of books by local authors published by Cape
Breton Books, beautiful postcards, and a selection of crafts and
collectibles. Our seasonal offerings include hunting permits,
fishing licenses, ice cream. In summer, we feature our famous
fresh lobster sandwich, along with a tasty crab sandwich.
For those unexpected travel emergencies, we offer a pay phone
and a popular little washroom (prepare to get in line!).
Our store has become the centre of our community. Especially
in the colder winter months, our coffee table is a gathering place
for locals to chat or share stories with visiting groups of snowmobile
enthusiasts in for fuel and a warmup. No matter what time of year
you visit us, you can be sure to find something you like, or someone
