Kaffie Frederick General Store Natchitoches


This Old Hardware Store site is the online storefront for the oldest General Store in the state of Louisiana, Kaffie-Frederick General Mercantile Store located in historic downtown Natchitoches, LA. As Louisiana’s oldest general store, our old store features everything you remember from the “good old days” like hardware, housewares, cookware and kitchen supplies, classic toys (like Radio Flyer) and gifts. Our original freight elevator still works, and our 1910 cash register is not only in great condition – we still use it for every sale. Whether you order online or off, you’ll get a nostalgic experience, old fashioned service and memories for a lifetime. Stop by and see us today!
