It's rare that a clothing store elicits rave reviews from both men and women, but the Biscuit General Store has achieved just that. It goes beyond the outfit and has been making friends out of customers long before social media existed. A modern shop with a vintage feel, Biscuit started selling quality classics and affordable, trendy fashion in 1996. It later expanded to accessories, home decor, and gifts. Check out the store's new side project, the Independent Mercantile Co. (TIMco for short) in the North End next to EDNA. TIMco sells a selection of home and kitchen items, books, and gifts and is destined to become another Halifax favorite.
