G&M Variety Store has been an anchor of the Rockville Town Square for nearly 25 years.
A truly authentic variety store, G&M has the appeal of an old-fashioned dime store, with nearly every inch of its space being utilized to showcase its merchandise.
“Our claim to fame is ‘we sell a little of a lot’,” said store owner Gary Nicola. “But that’s the name ‘Variety’.”
Featuring some 16,000 different products, G&M carries office and craft supplies, home and yard décor, health and beauty products, pet supplies, toys and much, much more.
Unique to the store are its memorial arrangements, which are created by store employees.
G&M also offers a “Special Order” service, including bulk sales, allowing customers to order items not stocked in the store.
“We continually introduce new items,” he said. “The key is the merchandise. In a variety store you have to have new stuff.”
Recently added items are Lego’s® and remote control helicopters to the toy department, and an expansion to the sewing and craft department.
G&M offers 10% Senior Discount Day on Wednesday’s.
“Lifelong shoppers consider this ‘their’ store,” said store owner Gary Nicola. “And they are right, it is their store.”
Open 7 days a week, with longer hours during scheduled town events, G&M Variety is a “must stop” on everyone’s itinerary while in town.
The store’s annual Christmas Shopping Spree, held the Saturday before Thanksgiving, kicks off the holiday season with a 20% off storewide sale, a visit by Santa, and special gift drawings throughout the day.
