Oneal's General Merchandise Est 1937

The original store opened in 1937 approximately 100 yards southwest of our current location.


Thank you to the Overstreet family, two of whom are pictured, for the photograph.

Ruth and Attis Oneal - 1950's

In 1956-57 Highway 49 became a four lane divided highway and necessitated the store relocating to our current location. In 1962 Ruth and Attis' daughter Winette and her husband Jimmie McDaniel moved to McHenry to take over the store and changed the name to McDaniel's General Merchandise.

1990's And a Third Generation

In 1998 Jim and Winette's daughter Patti moved home to become the third generation to run the family business. The store was still a general store carrying everything from groceries to logging supplies with hydraulic hoses being a welcome addition.

2000's

In 2007 Patti's son Jimmie Ragsdale moved home and joined the business. A changing market saw McDaniel's expand its offerings more into the outdoor power equipment field with the addition of zero turn mowers.

Today

Now owned by the third and fourth generation, McDaniels continues to grow and adapt to meet the needs of our community. A major rebuild in 2017 saw the biggest expansion we've had since moving the store in 1957 along with a large expansion of the hardware portion of the business and the addition of lumber. We look forward to some exciting additions in the near future as well as continuing to grow and adapt in the years to come.
