Last Chance General Store is a general store located in the Hinterlands which is practically in the middle of nowhere. They do have a telegram service though.

The Baudelaires stop there when they escape the Village of Fowl Devotees, and from there they attempt to send a telegram to Mr. Poe.[1]

The owner of the store is Milt. When the Baudelaires come he bakes them cranberry muffins. He does not charge the Volunteers Fighting Disease.[1]


It is described to be "covered with fading posters that advertised what was sold."[1]
