(Visited 12/2007): Volkert’s is a convenience store on Tuscarawas near I-77. There is a small private lot that is practically on the road, plus some street parking nearby.
The interior looks like most other convenience stores. There are coolers of beer on the first floor that are pretty much all macros, and there is also a small upstairs area that has another cooler of craft beer (and cold wines), plus a few shelves of beer.
As for the selection, it is decent. They carry beers from GLBC, DFH, Rogue (bombers as well), Stone, Breckenridge and others on the domestic side. There are a few imports as well from Belgium and the UK primarily. They also break down just about all of their beers into singles which is nice.
Service here is good. The people behind the counter were all very friendly and knew their beer pretty well, and additionally were helpful in finding a bottle of Lambrusco for me (it was a gift!).
Overall the selection here may not be better than anywhere else in Canton but it is always nice to see a mom ’n’ pop type store carrying craft beer. I will always go somewhere like that first over a grocery store.

I’ve passed by this small shop many times as it is located on one of the major streets in Canton, but due to the location would have never guessed it had a good beer selection. I decided to stop in one afternoon and was pleasantly surprised. Looks like they are still finishing the upstairs renovation which houses a small but nice selection of craft beer. The store is small and the cashiers are wonderfully nice people who are polite and helpful. Not too many rarities, but I was able to put together a mixed sixer of beers I’ve never seen in any other of the local shops. I’ll be back soon to try some other singles and plan on checking in from time to time. Prices are great, especially on the mixed singles. Nice find to add to my regular rotation.
