Our Philosophy

The General Store is part of Cornerstone Montclair, a business with a vision of fostering a community in which people of all abilities have opportunities for meaningful work, social engagement and active lifestyles.

The General Store supports the mission of Cornerstone Montclair by…

  • Providing meaningful work opportunities at the store for young adults, both with and without disabilities. As often as schedules permit, they are working together side by side.
  • Carrying merchandise and art made by young artists, entrepreneurs and people who have disabilities.
  • Organizing fun activities and events that appeal to people of all abilities all year long!
  • The General Store carries loads of fun gifts, games, toys and treats. Many people come in everyday to see and hear what community inclusion looks like up close.
