Randy and Steve’s: The New General Store


Remember the general stores of yesteryear? Savvy does. Well, OK, maybe she’s remembering the general stores of old TV westerns, but she does remember five-and-dimes. They were handy places, long gone and long lamented. Enter Randy and Steve’s: The New General Store in Ellicott City. Recently renovated from the historic Yates Market, the new place is spiffed up and decked out in gourmet trappings. You can still get fancy versions of staples such as laundry detergent and stationery, but co-owner Randy Neely says the new focus is on food and giftables. Peruse locally made spreads and honeys, pick up an old-fashioned shaving kit, or outfit your home with darling décor. Be sure to grab a gourmet sandwich from the in-shop deli before you depart. 8249 Main St., Ellicott City, 410-461-5840. http://www.randyandsteves.com
