Murphy’s General Store is a fresh take on the old-time general store--a modern, exciting gift shop housed in a rustic, 171-year-old main street building in Harwich Port, Massachusetts. Stop by for some jam, local honey, snack food, hot sauces, books, greeting cards, jewelry, games, puzzles, vinyl, and much, much more. With the “anything we think is cool” ethos, you never know quite what we will have in store. We are now open. Stop by and say hello!
free parking available in public parking lot a few doors down from our front door!
Our GRAND OPENING is today! Come in from 1-2 pm for FREE ice cream provided by @goodtimescapecod as well as some cool raffles!!! #harwichport #capecod #generalstore

To all the rad moms out there...you know who you are. Happy Mother’s Day 2019! xoxo #capecod #generalstore #harwichport
Happy sunny Saturday. Let’s do this. We are carrying some smashingly amazing jewelry over yonder. Leslie at @chimejewelry is a music fanatic and she makes her jewelry out of drum cymbals. How cool is that? We love her stuff. Thanks Leslie!!! #harwichport #generalstore #capecod
There might just be a vinyl section over here at Murphy’s General Store? Because we worship vinyl and there is nothing cooler. Always stuff hitting the shelves. We stock turntables, music books, and vinyl cleaning supplies. We also buy used records! #harwichport #generalstore #capecod #vinyl #records
MGS is super psyched to be carrying Couch wallets, belts, and guitar straps! 100% vegan, extremely durable, and made in the USA. The women’s Windmill Port wallet is a stunning Mum’s Day gift, or how about a wallet made out of 1968 Pontiac GTO trunk liner vinyl? Rock on, my fine peeps!!! #harwichport #vegan #generalstore #capecod
We just got some absolutely spectacular 100% alpaca yarn from Kathy and Mark over at Biltmore Wool Barn in Brewster. This stuff is so soft, you’ll want to make a giant pillow out of it. Kathy also let Jay visit the alpacas and feed them banana chips. Heather was a little jelly, but I’m sure Heather will be able to visit them sometime in the future (time permitting)! We are open from 9-6 today. #harwichport #generalstore #capecod
We are open until 6 pm today. We’ve met a ton of super cool peeps on our first day today. Some pretty awesome stories abounding? Having a blast! #generalstore #harwichport
After three solid months of repairs and updates, the brown paper has finally been removed from the front windows at Murphy’s General Store and we are smitten. She’s a beauty. We will be OPEN tomorrow morning at 9 am (to 6 pm). Stop by and say hello! #capecod #harwichport #generalstore #harwich
We are excited to be opening our doors very soon here in Harwich Port! Shelves are being stocked, lighting is being fine-tuned, etc. as we write this post. We really wanted to make it our sincere goal to find some unique, fun stuff for our store. When Jay was a wee lad some [gasp!] 35 years ago, his folks bought him a hand-forged, old timey blacksmith puzzle while they were visiting Port Jefferson, NY. It took Jay days to solve the puzzle and he adored the challenge. Flash forward to present, we were actually able to track down that SAME puzzle maker (the very skilled Dennis Sucilsky at Tucker-Jones House) and Dennis was kind enough to give us a personal tour of his blacksmith shop this past February. Dennis’s challenging collection of unique handcrafted puzzles will be available at @murphysgeneralstore along with some other super cool stuff. Can’t wait to see y’all!
