Georgie Lou's Quick Contacts

Where the Heck are We?

We're located at 56 West High Street in downtown Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

We've been in our current location since 2013 on the corner of West High Street and South Pitt Street.  We're right across the street from the world famous Hamilton Restaurant and four doors down from the Carlisle Theatre.  In the past, our space has been used as a coffee shop, sign shop, bookstore, and appliance dealer, but its original use was as a church, which was built in 1877.  Our building was nearly destroyed by fire in 1999 but was thankfully saved.  

Get Us on the Horn!

My grandmother at age seven.

Our phone number is (717) 243-1002.

Please leave a message if we can't answer.

Our phone number used to belong to my grandmother,  Dorothy Jean Fitzpatrick Cressler (shown above at age 7), who we lost right before we opened the store in November 2009.  She had quite a sweet tooth, and Spearmint Leaves were a favorite.  I didn't want her phone number disappearing into the depths of the telephone directory, so I changed the store phone number to hers.  Every time you make the phone ring, I think of her!

Need a quick response?  Email us at

Yes, we know we shouldn't be glued to our email, but when you own a business and providing personal service is important to you, that's what you end up doing!  We can't always answer the phone even when we're open because we won't interrupt our customers to grab it.  But, we do watch our email pretty diligently and can usually get back to you quickly.  So drop us an email, and we'll do our best to get you the answer you need fast
