Events of Alan Wake[]

Episode 5: The Clicker[]

After fleeing the Sheriff Station, which had been compromised, Barry Wheeler dives inside the store to take shelter from several Poltergeist vehicles. The entrance is blocked off from Alan Wake and Sheriff Breaker by the upturned vehicles requiring them to find another way around to get to Barry.

Inside the store Barry finds a string of fairy lights and a headlamp and wears them as protection from the Dark Presence, declaring that the Bright Falls General Store is now his favorite place in the world.

Special 1: The Signal[]

The General Store appears in Alan's mind. This time Alan actually goes inside after making his way down the street full of Poltergeist vehicles revealing that the store actually incorporates two adjacent buildings. He uses the back door to exit to a new area.


  • While Wake can't enter the General Store in Episode 5, approaching the wreckage in front triggers a conversation with Barry.
  • A manuscript page details Barry in the store discovering a locked case of flare guns next to a conveniently placed barrel of crowbars.
  • The interior of the General Store appears in Alan's mind despite his never actually going inside the real one.
