Rusticana opened its doors in 1978 at the Wood location (formerly the Sherwood House). Rusticana moved to its current location in 1982 and has been providing great customer service for all of those years. It was a true general store in years gone by with fishing licenses, bait and tackle. Long time locals, Christine and Jason de Soto, took over in 2013. They were in the market for a new venture when Rusticana came into their lives. They saw Rusticana as a gathering place of the community, the hub of town, and envisioned a family run corner store like the ones they shopped in as children
Although Rusticana no longer sells fishing supplies, it is what it always has been; a place for school kids to get some candies, a fun place to buy your lotto ticket, a place to browse our extensive local vendors, the tourist stop for postcards and funky keychains, and the first place you go in the morning when you realize you are out of milk and eggs for breakfast. Rusticana is "Your corner store with more".
