Nuttall's Store

Nuttall's Store

The Ware Neck Store and Post Office,  which houses Nuttall Store, is a significant historical resource of Gloucester County, Virginia and was placed on the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.  Its location at a key intersection of roads in Ware Neck and its close proximity to the old public Hockley Wharf on the Ware River has enabled the Ware Neck Store and Post Office to survive for the last 140 years even as the community and commerce transitioned from the waterways to the highways.

Founded as the Arthur Tabb Store in 1877, the business flourished for generations because of its profitable ties to the steamship lines that connected nearby Hockley Wharf with the Chesapeake Bay and various ports along the Eastern Seaboard. 

Nuttall's thrives today as a grocery store with take out food, a deli, wine and beer selection, gift, and fishing bait and tackle.
