  • I’ve been a fan of Mountain Valley for years. The first floor is just a store with all types of their bottles. My son was amazed to see the 5 gallon bottles made of glass. Upstairs is open for...  more »
  • Some interesting memorabilia on the second floor. Not sure what I was expecting but it was an okay way to spend some time on a rainy day. Folks were friendly.  more »

  • An interesting look at an old company making it through a very long and varied time. The upstairs museum has a lot of information about the company as well as some history of famous people who were or are real fans. For Elvis fans, they have a unique bit of memorabilia. Apparently Elvis was a huge fan. I won't spoil the surprise, go check it out.
  • This store is so very cool! My cousins, my brother and I wandered into this store after shopping Bathhouse and I was pleasantly surprised by the awesome stuff inside. I just bought a water, and it was really great spring water, but this place also had reusable bottles and clothing. I liked all the merchandise. Next time, I may buy a shirt or something.
  • Such a great bottled mineral water that we went back 2 days in a row. Staff was over the top nice until we asked if my car would be alright in their lot while we grabbed some coffee next door to go. Sign stated parking was for customers which we were and even repeat. The moral of the story here is that they are fake nice to get to you to buy at least $5 worth of water.
  • The staff were so helpful and nice, and even welcome dogs inside! Make sure to check out the little museum upstairs while you're there. And the sparkling water is delicious, especially the lime flavor!
  • The younger woman that works here named McKensie is incredibly rude. She stood in front of the coolers while we were trying to select a water and would not move, just continued to restock. Eventually, we bought waters and went upstairs after speaking to a nice employee. She told us we could walk around upstairs and drink our purchases. Once we walked upstairs, McKensie stomped up there and told us how valuable everything up there was and that we couldn’t be near it. We moved a photo album so it was in a safer place (away from the water) and she told us that that wasn’t okay because it could be stolen. She said a few other things but the jist of it is that she was extremely rude while we were being nothing but respectful. The other employee apologized and was kind
