An interesting store, based upon a "general store" of the past. They had a good selection of kitchen items, and old-timey toys. The prices were very reasonable, and I would have bought more, but would not have been able to add items to my carry-on luggage. We did not try the restaurant.

This place is crammed with small, medium and large decorations and accessories. The Christmas season is especially busy and brilliant. Personalized ornaments, sidewalk balloon candle set, children and adult gifts. Plus, the restaurant is attached and very good. Just get there early because it is a local favorite.

I am so lucky to live 3 blocks away! I can always find the right gift, and have a delicious lunch, dinner or snack at their restuarant.

This is a really fun store for home items, clothing, and jewelry. Prices are average to high, but usually worth it for some less typical items. Also has a cafe if you want to make an afternoon of it.

This place has a little bit of everything and all nice things that you don't really see anywhere else. One stop gift shopping, friendly employees, a good selection of MN items - Can't say enough good about it! Worth the drive if you aren't close and for sure you have to stop in if you are just driving by.

Great Minnesota gifts and items for the home. Really nice inventory especially around holiday time. Wild Rice gift sets, kitchen items, ornaments, cabin theme items. Nice cafe too.

Had lunch in the café on Sunday, where you shuffle along the line with your tray and order from a small selection of salad, sandwiches and soup (even though egg salad sandwich was listed, my husband ordered it and was told they didn't have any made). The food was good. We then wandered through the maze of the general store.... More

I have been going to the General Store since the early 1980's. I just love the selection of gifts they have.The cafe is great especially the popovers and treats. Buy one of their cookbooks,many wonderful recipes. I love the clothing selection upstairs. The personalized area is great for children's gifts. You will not leave empty handed.

I was given a gift card for General Store so I went with my husband and 10 year old daughter. This place definitely has character with its old floors and maze-like shopping experience. Many of the gift items were retro, which I'm not really into, but it was still fun to look at. My husband didn't last long and he... More

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
