This is the place to go when you can't find something for that person who is hard to buy for. Guaranteed you will find something. Even if you are not Christmas shopping, it is always fun to visit the General Store during the holidays or anytime. They always have fun and unique items - they even have things that are... More

This is a must visit and worth the 30-45 min drive from the airport! Make it a lunch date and spend an hour or two shopping. Great gifts, seasonal deco, soups, dips, frames, home gear, clothes, baby gear. Fabulous and we are appreciative that our friends introduced us to it through fun gifts we have received. A true MN experience!

If you need a gift for someone, I defy you to leave this place empty-handed. They have EVERYTHING here. If you don't need to shop, come by to look at what is here and have a bite to eat. This is just a fun place to visit. I especially like the sections that have reproductions of toys I grew up... More

I love going to the General Store because it changes so often! It is always fun to see what new things they have out! A friend who had not been there before went with me this time. You have to plan to spend some time there as there is so much to look at! Don't forget to go upstairs also!

Beware if you have sensitivity to scents, as this store always has a warm inviting seasonal scent. This place is packed with so many local and imported hand made trinkets and toys. This is a must stop for us around the holidays.

This store is full of unique items that you won't find anywhere else! I especially love browsing the handmade items from local artists. Be sure to check out the clothing boutique upstairs - so many cute clothes at affordable prices! Dinner in the new Cafe and Bistro is also excellent. During lunchtime, it is deli style - where you order... More

This store stocks things you can't always find anyplace else. Some things are local and handmade. They used to have more handmade things than they do now, though. They recently added a Pandora shop. This also is a fun place just to hang out in for an afternoon. Great place to find gifts.
