Shopping in Vermont
While Vermont is not known for our shopping malls, there are plenty of unique shopping experiences both in and out of Ludlow! Here are a few options:
The Town of Ludlow offers a myriad of family run shops that pride themselves on good old-fashioned customer service. From fabrics and clothing, to postcards and art, hand cream or bag balm... you will not only find a collection of shops, galleries, and country stores, but a passionate group of local business owners. Check the Chamber website for listings.
Vermont Country Store
Whether you choose to visit the original location in Weston, or the "new" store in Rockingham, the real country store experience will not be missed. The store's tagline... "purveyors of the practical and hard-to-find" fits them well. Where else can you buy a wedge of aged cheddar cut from a 38-pound wheel, a long-lost apothecary brand or candy bar you can't find anywhere else? Penny candy... well not quite a penny anymore! Check out their website for more info.
