The corner store is something that can be found in many small towns all across America. However, when you step foot in the Sibley Corner Store, you quickly see that it is filled with a selection you wouldn’t expect to see in a small town shop.
“I usually describe it as specialty foods, kitchenware, home decor type items, a little bit of everything. It is a new version of the old general store.” says Owner Krista McCallister
McCallister has owned the Sibley General Store since 1994. Even as the town has struggled economically, she has been able to keep the business thriving. She credits the success to having things that people won’t be able to find at big box stores in nearby cities.
“I try to find things that are different. We are kind of a destination so I try to find things that are worth the drive because most of the customers come from 35 miles away.” McCallister says
