Wreck Cove General Store: Open all year Wreck Cove General Store: Open all year

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 to meet.
