In the historic community of Welcome, Texas, the 2,758 square foot Welcome Store is a local icon and is now available for purchase. The Welcome General Store began its operation in 1889. The store initially operated under the name John Reichle General Merchandise. The Welcome Store was originally two stories high, until the 1900 Galveston Storm destroyed the top floor. The store had a post office and also carried a wide variety of goods typical of a general store such as dry foods, furniture, glassware, and even caskets. It has been a community gathering place for over a century, where area residents have come together to share stories and play games. The management of the store remained in the Reichle family until 1956, and it is currently owned and operated by the Faist family. Many residents and reporters have often referred to the store as the “one-stop station of a warm country community”. Today, customers are able to buy goods such as fresh groceries, drinks, gasoline, and feed in the store. The Welcome Store has always been the economic and entertainment hub for this historic area of Texas and is ripe for a rebirth.
