B & R Grocery

August 25th, 2014


Anyone familiar with the drive from Waynesboro up Mt. Torrey Road to Wintergreen, Sherando and the Blue Ridge Parkway is likely to recognize this building.  This is B&R Grocery, an essential local store for many, many years.  It is a convenience store, deli, gun shop, grocery with quality goods, including some fine wines, cheeses and meats.  For nearly 15 years this store has been owned and managed by Earl and Barbara Hanna.  The Hannas are now ready to retire and turn over the future expansion of this business to other hands.  The property has just been listed with Clay Ramsay of Greenways Real Estate for $749.900.  This property has potential for development in so many ways. 

In addition to the business, this property includes a 3700 sq. ft chalet style home above the store and 9 level wooded and open acres adjoining the National Forest.  The acreage includes a nice backyard, garden area, and a half acre stream and spring fed pond. This land offers some expansion opportunities for the business. It would be a wonderful setting for a micro-brewery / restaurant. Small cabins might be built to offer some conveniences to hikers on the Appalachian Trail, which is less than a mile away, or for equestrians who want to spend several days enjoying the unlimited riding in the Big Levels area of the National Forest. Or perhaps a shooting range out back would be a good complement to B&R's gun shop.

Living area above the store.  3700 sq. ft with large open rooms, including 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, with a large master bath, and large office and very large, open family room.

Ample, well-equipped kitchen

Living Room with cathedral ceiling 

Deli Dining area where one can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Selection of Good Wines


View from the kitchen of the dining area and grocery.


Gun Shop known for very competitive prices.  B&R is a destination shopping point for gun enthusiasts.

B&R offers a variety of souvenirs, collectibles, knives, clothing, hunting and fishing gear and more.

Very nice backyard.

Road to the back of the acreage and the National Forest.  Happy Trails await.

Half acre stream and spring fed pond where some big ones await your hook and line.

A zero turn mower could be included in the deal.

A wonderful out back space for dogs, horses, hunters, campers, and perhaps even to host an occasional outdoor music event.

"I've been a customer of this Country Store for over 30 years. When I was living up in Northern Virginia it was a must stop store when camping, hunting or fishing at Sherando Lake, with gas, propane gas, camping supplies, a quick meal or fishing and hunting supplies. The owners have made great improvements to this store and for someone or a group of investors to buy it they will immediately have employees to help with the transition. Since moving to the area I've checked their firearms prices and found them competitive along with pulling in on my motorcycle for a meal and gas. I've never been upstairs but to live and work in the same location is quite an opportunity. " Larry Bethea
