Prices Creek General Store is owned and operated by Yancey County native Max Ballew. He grew up in the store business, helping his dad in a small rural grocery store when he was eleven years old. Max has been in business since 1971, as he started out selling groceries and gas from his own store. He opened Prices Creek in 1980, gradually building up a small grocery store to the highly successful general store that it is today. Now, with his wife Freida, their five children, and eleven grandchildren over 30 years later, Max sells everything from clothing to feed. On any given day you’ll find him at the store, ordering merchandise and answering customer’s questions. His spare time is spent on the golf course and with his ever-growing family.
