Fred’s General Mercantile


Beech Mountain is such a great place all year! With skiing and snowboarding in the winter and biking, hiking and disc golf in the summer, there’s always something going on. The red building in this photograph is Fred’s General Mercantile, known to most as just “Fred’s.” Fred’s has been serving visitors and residents of Beech Mountain for decades and is the go-to spot for everything you could need from hardware to wine. There’s even a grumpy cat that doesn’t like to be looked at the wrong way! Note to self: get a photo of that cat some time.

This photograph was captured with a DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone.
