Conrad and Hinkle was established in 1919, and remains in the same location nearly one hundred years later. These grocers may be best known for serving the folks in Lexington with some of the best, most tasty pimento cheese around. This is a good old southern taste of Lexington you certainly don’t want to miss!
After you get your homemade pimento cheese, walk across Main Street to an old time candy store for good old-fashioned “Red Bird” peppermint candy made by Piedmont Candy Company right here in Lexington. The peppermint candy sticks and puffs are a mainstay, but these days when you walk in the door, your nose will be instantly drawn to the wonderful aroma of homemade, fresh fudge.
Walk down Main to NC’s oldest True Value hardware store. Although this is of special interest to the guys, the ladies just might find something special as well. “If you don’t find it at Lanier’s, you probably don’t really need it!”
Take a walk down Main and visit one of the over 50 independently owned shops. There are antiques, consignments, garden or kids shops… Something for everyone! Also, check out the nearby Revolutionary War and Civil War monuments.
