Oneida is blessed with a vibrant business community that has adapted to change throughout the years.

In the beginning, more than 100 years ago, Oneida was centered around the railroad depot and what is now South Main Street. As time passed, the heart of the business community moved first to the Oak Grove district in mid-town Oneida, and to now what is lovingly referred to locally as the “Four Lane,” the main drag thoroughfare through the center of town.

However, things come full circle. The Oak Grove district is currently undergoing revitalization and is home to the new headquarters of First National Bank, and South Main Street is also being revitalized. The Main Street area is home to our public library, as well as businesses like The Black Cat Antiques & Oddities, the Museum of Oneida and Scott County, Trophy Masters (awards and apparel), Busy Bee Boutique, Furniture on Main and The Little Kitchen. Marcum’s Furniture & Appliance, one of Oneida’s oldest businesses, is nearby on Depot Street, and next door to it is Gather Coffee Lounge, as well as Scott County Florist. Just off Main Street are Mark’s Family Pharmacy on East 3rd Avenue and BluByrd Spa & Lounge on Bank Street.

The Four Lane district includes nationally-recognized brands like Walmart, Save-A-Lot, Tractor Supply Co. and Walgreens, Dollar Tree and Farmers Home Furniture, as well as Oneida’s oldest retail business, Lay Family Furniture. There’s also Andy’s Flower Shoppe and Mary Belle’s Ice Cream, as well as United Cumberland Bank and Lumber King.

The downtown area includes a Dollar General and Plateau DrugCenter, which includes a Hallmark store. There is Buckhorn, our hunting and fishing supply outfitter, on Industrial Lane, as well as our office supply store, Scott Supplies, and building supply stores Salvage LLC and Potter’s Ace Hardware

Joining First National Bank in the Oak Grove district are Phillips Merle Norman and Ellis Pawn & Gun, which includes a Radio Shack.

We have several independent pharmacies in town, including Roark’s Pharmacy in the Oak Grove district, and Danny’s Drugs on the Four Lane, in addition to Plateau DrugCenter downtown. 

These days, retail is expanding into Oneida’s east side, where our brand-new ambulance headquarters is currently under construction. Businesses there include our very own gym, Engineered Fitness

On the south side of town you’ll find One Bank of Tennessee and, brand new in 2023, Tommy’s Motorsports

Oneida is home to a growing number of boutiques and similar shops. You’ll find Hot Mess Express in Oneida Plaza on the Four Lane, Busy Bee Boutique on Main Street, and The Beautique on the east side of town.

If you care to step off the beaten path just a bit, you’ll continue to find unique shops, like Farmhouse Southern Market on Litton Road, Milford’s Flower Shop on Litton Road, and The Primitive Barn (open Saturdays) on Niggs Creek Road.

Don’t forget to pamper yourself! Check out The Skin Clinic at Timber Rock Lodge on the north side of town, or at Wildflower Wellness in the mid-town area.
