Welcome to Johnson & Company!
On October 9, the product of three years of planning, prayers, dreams, and hard work will come to fruition in downtown Clinton, Tennessee. Johnson & Company General Store will hold its grand opening and ribbon cutting at 10 AM on the 9th at 139 N. Main St.
Johnson & Company will have several high-quality and unique brands available at opening, including Canoe, Bellemonde luggage, Creative Co-Op, Mills Floral, Redstone Candy, MB Greene Be Clear Collection, and Heartland Fragrance.
We at Johnson & Company couldn’t be more excited to share our dream with you. Owner Charlotte Johnson and daughter Rebekah Elliott have wanted to see this happen since 2014. Johnson worked in retail with her husband at a pair of stores in Powell for over 30 years.
“I saw the need for a community general store in Clinton,” Johnson says. “I grew up there – that’s my home, that’s my community, that’s where my family was born.” Johnson went to work on the early stages of what would become Johnson & Company General Store.
Since 2014, she and her daughter Rebekah have worked to make this dream a reality. Rebekah works tirelessly to keep inventory updated and accurate, while Charlotte oversees the store as a whole and makes sure every visitor’s experience is a positive, pleasant one.
“What we can offer that a lot of stores can’t is that vintage, small-store experience that’s lost in a lot of the big-box stores near Clinton,” says Johnson. “There hasn’t been a general store in Clinton in over 60 years, and it’s time to bring one back.”
Johnson also notes the difficulty in getting some of these products in stores near Clinton. “For a lot of the products we’ll carry, you would need to drive to Knoxville or even further out to find them. This saves our customers a lot of time and really aids this community in finding fashionable, affordable, unique products.”
As a reminder, Johnson & Company General Store will open at 139 N. Main Street on October 9th at 10 AM. There will be a ribbon cutting and grand opening ceremony held at the store.
