Alley’s General Store, located in Chilmark opened for business in 1858. It is the oldest operating retail business on the Vineyard, which almost came to an end in the 1980’s. Fortunately around 1993 the MV Preservation Trust bought the property, renovated it and gave “the dealers in almost anything” a new lease on life.
Step inside Alley’s and be amazed and delighted at what you might find there, it’s a general store in the truest sense of the word. Take a look at the ever present bulletin board notices… catch up on the local news of the day… or just sit on the porch with a cup of coffee.
