It’s Now Easy Getting To Callahan’s General Store

Studio 512

No matter the direction from which you’re driving, it’s now a breeze to get to Callahan’s General Store.

Callahan’s General Store opened its doors for business in June of 1978. It has been a place for people to gather, shop, visit and experience a true piece of Texas. Lately, it may have been a little harder to get there because of the construction on Highway 183 but now that project is complete.

Charley Wilson, president and general manager of Callahan’s General Store, joined Studio 512 Rosie Newberry to discuss his business and the competed construction making it easier to stop by.

Wilson discussed why the highway construction disruption was worth the wait, what he is hearing from customers about the new traffic flow, and what customers can find at Callahan’s when they arrive.
