Our Story

founded 1983

" Where You Can Find Everything Under The Sun "

Our Family Business Tree

Starting back in 1983, founders Jim & Jan Everett's moto has always been

"people equal the company". 

Not only do Jim and Jan's direct family The Everett's, Burke's and Sander's work for the companies, so do a number of famlies from the Lehighton and Palmerton area.

We pride ourselves in being able to employ people of our community. For many, working at  Country Junction is the first job they get. 

Humble Beginings circa 1983

Imagine a company that adds something new every time a customer asks for it.  That's basicaly how,  we, a company called The Service Team, became Country Junction, "World's Largest General Store".

We started out installing insulation.  Then our customers began asking us for hardware, so we added hardware and became a home center.  The customers started asking us for lawn and garden items, so we added a barn and began to sell lawn and garden products.  Then we added small gift, and  home decor items.

We changed our name because our customers were telling us that we had everything under the sun for their homes;  we added furniture and bigger home accessories.
