Do you remember the photos of you as a child on Santa's lap, or the excitement of waiting in line thinking of what you would tell Santa you wanted for Christmas? Well, now your furry four-legged friend can experience this feeling at the Country Junction, World's Largest General Store in the Pocono Mountains!
Santa "Claws" will pose with pets and/or people this holiday season at the Country Junction. We hear he loves all types of animals; so bring your cat, dog, or bunny; all ages are permitted! If you have a fidgety pet they'll snap a few shots to ensure a picture perfect finish. As you can see from Asti's photo, she wanted out of there. Santa has no issues holding smaller pets on his lap but Asti was a bit too big.
While we were waiting for our pictures to be printed we took a walk over to the pet store where they have birds, reptiles, fish, bunnies, ferrets, kittens and puppies. They also offer a large selection of pet food, toys and much, much more. We picked out a new toy for Asti and stopped by the K9er-Diner for a few of her favorite iced cookies!
After we picked up our photos we walked over to the petting farm and fed the llamas, sheep, and goats. Asti wanted no part of the animals, which surprised me, until I turned around and noticed she met a new friend, a bull dog named "Sam".
We then proceeded to the general store and walked the yellow brick road. This place is exceptionally pet friendly! There was a customer that had a really cute black poodle sitting in the cart, when I got closer a white poodle popped its head up from under the coat; Asti barked, I screamed, and the lady pushing the cart started laughing because there was yet another one in the cart playing with the items she was purchasing.
In the general store you will find an endless shopping experience from foods, candy, ice cream, gourmet coffee, fresh popped popcorn to house wares, a flower shop, Yankee Candles, and an art gallery. You will also find Ashley Furniture, Sorrenti's Wine Cellar (wine tasting available), ACE Hardware, and you can even have a delicious lunch and a movie in the "Barn Door", their restaurant and theater.
‘Tis the season to make memories! So why not capture those memories with a picture of your furry friend with Santa "Claws" at the Country Junction World's Largest General Store located on Route 209 in Lehighton. Santa will be there the next two weekends (Dec 10-11 and Dec 17-18) from 12 noon to 4:00 pm. A variety of picture packages starting at $5 will be available for purchase and are printed on the spot!
Have a barking good time this Holiday Season!
