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 owner of the store is Milt. When the Baudelaires come, he bakes them cranberry muffins. He does not charge the Volunteers Fighting Disease. When a newspaper from The Daily Punctilio talking about the Baudelaires "murdering" Count Olaf arrives, the Baudelaires hide in the vehicle of the Volunteers Fighting Disease when Milt recognizes them.
It is described to be "covered with fading posters that advertised what was sold."
The store is known to sell a number of things such as, fresh limes, plastic knives, canned meat, white envelopes, mango flavored candy, red wine, leather wallets, fashion magazines, goldfish bowls, sleeping bags, roasted figs, cardboard boxes, controversial vitamins, asparagus, fountain pens, onions, peacock feathers, cooking utensils, chandeliers, tiles, cat food, fish nets, mirrors, socks, ivy, matches, shoes, gasoline, nylon rope, floor wax, soup bowls, window curtains, rocking horses, top hats, fibre-optic cable, pink lipstick, apricots, magnifying glasses, umbrellas, paintbrushes, French horns, pepper grinders, safety pins, candy canes, ashtrays, construction paper, canned peas, undershirts, clocks, towel racks, piggy banks, placid skirts, slippers, sausages, bathtubs and newspapers.
