“the oldest store in Louisiana”
Established in 1863, the Kaffie-Frederick General Mercantile store of Natchitoches, Louisiana is not only the oldest business in the city, but it’s an important landmark for the entire community! Founded by Jewish Prussian immigrants Adolph and Harris Kaffie, the store has since done its best to maintain the original appearance of the store – even though its products have changed across the decades. This Old Hardware Store site is the online storefront for the oldest store in the state of Louisiana, Kaffie-Frederick General Mercantile Store located in historic downtown Natchitoches, LA. As Louisiana’s oldest general store, our old store features everything you remember from the “good old days” like hardware, housewares, cookware and kitchen supplies, classic toys (like Radio Flyer) and gifts. Our original freight elevator still works, and our 1910 cash register is not only in great condition – we still use it for every sale. Whether you order online or off, you’ll get a nostalgic experience, old fashioned service and memories for a lifetime. Stop by and see us today!
