The Twin Peaks General Store

 

Welcome to the Twin Peaks General Store, which actually used to be a real general store in Monrovia, CA up until around 4 or 5 years ago.  They even had that freaking same train set in the window, as you’ve probably seen over at intwinpeaks.com.

These days the former General Store is now a Pinkberry and there’s barely any trace of the former location except for the view outside of the window which remains the same.  Imagining that the Double R Diner is just a block over is quite an easy thing to do.  Perhaps Monrovia is an often substitute for Washington state in Hollywood, as it was also used as small town Washington state in the 1996 Farley/Spade comedy Black Sheep.

 

If you’re in the area, drop by and have a smoothie and dream of all that could have been…and then go get a donut at the Monrovia Bakery which was also a filming location during a Twin Peaks deleted scene.  You might even see Mad Men filming there.

    Oh mannn! That is depressing! I actually nearly cried reading this haha. I feel like the heartache of season three never eventuating has just stuck again with the remains of the filming set diminishing. Too much of Twin Peaks has been taken away from me now hahaha.
