In 2003, Brentwood General Store grew out of its starting location in the dining room of Melissa & Jeffrey Clark's home to their first location at the Brentwood Country Mart. Over the course of 10 years, Brentwood General Store grew to become a loved and valued member of the community. Every husband, wife and child stops by to pick up their favorite candle or the gift they had been so eagerly wanting to buy for a loved one. Embracing every holiday, Brentwood General Store is a festive environment, always having exactly what you are looking for.

In January of 2013, the time had come to move on to bigger and better. Although the decision to do so was hard, Brentwood General Store left the Country Mart, moving to bigger storefront a short mile away on Montana Avenue in Santa Monica, California.

Our values, staff and role in the community will never change, and we look forward to a new beginning and improving on what is a true community hub. In March of 2013, Brentwood General Store opened at its new location in the heart of Santa Monica, CA at 1413 Montana Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90403. Maintaining our values and mission, we are proud to say that our new store is bigger, better and  has plenty of room for more irresistible candles! Come on by and pay us a visit, we would love to see you!
