Staff ReportBeesKnees_4

The Bee’s Knees General Store, 118 N. First Street,  will be holding its grand opening on Friday starting at 11 a.m.

During remodeling the building has been transformed into what a general store used to be.

There will be drawings and food as well as entertainment provided by Paper Airplanes during the opening.

The store will be an eclectic combination of antiques, vintage Americana, books, art and much more.

The owners plan to create a throwback to when shopping was slow paced, fun, friendly and cheap.

The Bee’s Knees is the culmination of a lifelong dream by Willie Crump and Alan Brown to create a store that takes people back to the good old days.
