The Cooksville General Store has opened after about 1-1/2 years of inactivity. The new proprietor, Sue Ebbert, opened for business on Labor Day weekend. Sue also operates Simple Country Living near Fort Atkinson.
There will be a Grand Opening on September 28 and 29. Currently the Store is open Saturdays and Sunday 10-6, and it will be open Tuesday through Sunday, 10-6 after the Grand Opening.
Built in 1847 and located in the Cooksville Historic District, the historic Store may be the oldest General Store in Wisconsin. The building is owned by the Masonic Lodge (Waukoma #90), which occupies the second floor; the Store occupies the first floor.

The interior of the spacious first floor has been remodeled by Sue to meet her needs. The old shelving has been removed, new coolers have been added, and the store has restocked with fresh baking items, spices, homemade pies, locally grown produce and other specialty items.
“I’m excited about coming to Cooksville and re-opening the store,” Sue says. “ I’m offering a unique product mix and am looking forward to working with the Cooksville community to provide the entire area with a broad mix of items that aren’t available elsewhere, with the exception with my store near Fort Atkinson.
The community is eager to cooperate with Ms. Ebbert and assist in providing an exciting business addition to the historic Cooksville community.
