About Us

Once the Old Cox Dance Hall, our Bandera General Store is over 100 years old and still has the original floors and ceiling. When you come to our store, we want to offer you a unique experience.

While you are able to get a wide array of Texas themed gifts and souvenirs among other things, you will leave with so much more.  You’ll leave with memories, stories, and a piece of Texas history to be treasured for a life time.

This is not your ordinary General Store. Well, we even have our very own ghost named Henry!

If you come to our store for gifts, you can stay and enjoy some Honky Tonk and live like a true cowboy.
