The general store is a type of shop placed in many locations in RuneScape. Unlike a specialty shop, it accepts all tradeable items. The general store is identified on the map by a pot General store icon.png icon.

Staples[edit | edit source]

A typical general store.

Each general store carries a few commonly used, inexpensive items. It rarely runs out of these items for long, as they tend to restock quickly. The following is the most conventional inventory for a general store:

Most general stores available in the free-to-play map area also carry the following:

Other common items for the general store include:

Anything goes[edit | edit source]

The stock of a typical general store.

In addition to regular stock, players may sell any tradeable item to a store, so the general store in each town will often have a stock of the local specialty, though any item can be sold to any location. A player can buy any item in the general store that they want if they have enough money. Bargains may sometimes be found from players unaware of typically higher street prices, or in too much of a hurry to find a buyer.

Sell prices[edit | edit source]

When selling to a general store, the price when it has no stock of that item is the low alchemy value, i.e. 40% of the item's in-game value (the item's stock price in a specialty shop). The minimum price the player receives for selling any item is 10% of the item's value, so 25% of the item's initial (low alchemy/general store) price.

Every overstocked item causes the selling price to decrease by 3% of the initial price. This causes the minimum price (10% of the item's value) to be reached after the store is overstocked with 10 of that item.

For example, tiara has a value of 100 GP and a Low Alch price of 40 GP so the first tiara is sold for that. The lowest price that tiaras go for is 10% of item's value which is 10 GP. Each sold tiara decreases the price by 3% of 100 GP = 3 coins.

Note: The general stores in the Wilderness Bandit Camp (Bandit Duty Free General Store), and in Rogues' Den (Martin Thwait's Lost and Found) will buy items at a high alchemy price, which is 60% of its value, or 150% of the price offered in normal general stores.

Buy prices[edit | edit source]

When buying items from a general store, the price starts at 127% of the item's value with 1 item in stock and decreases by 3% with each extra item stocked until it reaches 30% of the item's value at 34 items in stock.

Owners[edit | edit source]

In the General store there are shop keepers and shop assistants. When you right click on one of them you can choose either talk to (for a longer way to get in), or trade (to go straight to the market).
