Celebrating 60 Years of the finest specialty foods and wine! 

Symons General Store is a family-owned specialty grocery store, deli, and wine cellar located in Petoskey, MI’s historical Gaslight District. Since 1956, Symons has been a destination for wine lovers, cheese connoisseurs, and foodies alike. Many have said that entering the building is akin to taking a step into the past, with its original wood floors, embossed tin ceiling, nostalgic candy selection, and other old-fashioned charms.

Don’t let our looks fool you though! Despite our old-school appearance, we have a large selection of the latest gourmet items from around the world, and we’re always on the lookout for something new. We carry many Michigan made products, including local jams, chocolates, and maple syrups.

Within our cheese case, you will discover an assortment of fine imported and domestic cheeses. We cut wedges to order or we would be happy to create a beautiful tray using an assortment of accompaniments including sweet and savory spreads, olives, nuts, honeys, and charcuterie. 

Downstairs in our wine cellar, you’ll find a carefully curated collection of over 400 different wines. We have everything from a local Chateau Grand Traverse Riesling to a coveted bottle of Tenuta dell'Ornellaia Masseto Toscana. Our cellar has been called one of “America’s 50 Most Amazing Wine Experiences” by Food and Wine magazine. It’s a great place to host a party too!

So whether you're seriously into wine, want to create a unique gift basket for your favorite food lover, or are hungry for a delicious deli sandwich, stop in to see us!
