Piercetown General Store
Tucked in the tiny triangular intersection of Fire Tower Rd and Hwy 81 in Piedmont is a surprising little shop known as the Piercetown General Store. Walk through the door and you will find there is nothing ‘general’ about this store.

Stepping into the Piercetown General Store your eyes are immediately delighted with the colors of fresh local produce and a wall of jams chutney, pickles, and gourmet condiments neatly displayed. You will find hand-scooped ice-cream and locally raised meats. And coming in over the speakers, Rock n Roll.
Two years ago, owner Joe Diorio took what was once an old saddle and feed store and breathed the dream of a hot-dog joint into her. Not just any hot-dog joint though. Joe's New York style hot-dogs have been chef-developed specially for Piercetown General Store. There are no hormones or antibiotics in the all-beef hot-dogs. And they are tasty! Full of flavor and perfectly juicy, nestled between the halves of freshly baked buns, these dogs are going to bring you back for more!
There is no doubt that as a host, Joe is unforgettable, and the love he has put into Piercetown General Store reflects in every corner. Bring the family and sit at the long farmhouse table to enjoy a hotdog, laugh over a cone of ice cream, and load up on some local groceries before you head home. I assure you, it will be an afternoon well spent.
