“Every ornament you can think of!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2014 NEW via mobile

Absolutely amazing! The store is huge and has just about anything you could need for Christmas and then some. My wife has ordered ornaments from Bronners for years and when we moved close enough to visit, we just had to go. They also personalize your ornaments for free while you shop. Be prepared to spend a bit. If you're ever close enough, you must visit.

“Christmas Galore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2014 NEW

The store is a destination. There is about anything conceivable as it relates to Christmas. The employees are very friendly and have a great knowledge of the store and the products they sell. With the thousands of items in the store, I do not know how they keep everything straight. The Silent Night Chapel displays the real meaning of Christmas. We typically go at least once a year and are amazed every time we go. It only keeps getting better.

“Wonderful Christmas Store!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2014 NEW

If you are visiting Frankenmuth, Bronner's Christmas Wonderland is a place you must not miss. People come from miles away just to visit this store, and it is completely worth your time. I live nearby, so I feel very lucky that I can stop in anytime I want, and that I can drive by at night and enjoy their amazing display of Christmas lights. The best time to visit is during a weekday in December. It will be bustling, but not overwhelmingly busy. Santa will be there on a daily basis after Thanksgiving (double-check this on their website for the hours) and if you have little kids, this is the BEST Santa you will ever see. He's not a "mall" style Santa. He is pure magic, with a real white beard, and his eyes twinkle. On the weekends, the wait time is extreme, though, so that's why I recommend a visit during the week. If you don't mind a wait, I have to say, the way they handle it is awesome. You'll get a specific time to go to the line, so you don't have to stand and inch forward for hours. Then, you can shop until you hear them call for those with your particular time period. There will still be a line, but it is well-managed.

Aside from a visit to Santa, there are many other reasons to visit Bronner's. They have more Christmas ornaments than anyplace you might have ever visited. They are well-organized, too. So, say you want an ornament for a dancer, you'll find the section for dancers, or perhaps there's a chemist in your family, yes, there are ornaments for him (or her), too. They have ornaments for people who like old-fashioned Victorian ornaments, as well as ornaments for those who love dogs, or cats, or many other animals. There are more sections of ornaments than I could possibly list. They even have ornaments to represent other countries. They have a toy section, but it's fairly small, but they have a nice selection of kids' Christmas books, too. They have a large assortment of artificial Christmas trees, and they are rather pricey, but it's fun to walk through and look at them. They are certainly good quality. There are stockings you can get personalized; angels and other figurines for those who may be collectors; they have candy and coffee cups; Christmas lights, tinsel, and other decorations, too. Anything you need for Christmas can be found at Bronner's.

When you go, be sure to take a drive through their parking lot at night. Be sure to take a drive through the little town of Frankenmuth, MI, too. It is beautiful and it will lift your spirits to see the lights and decorations of Christmas. Whenever I'm feeling down, a trip through Bronner's Christmas Wonderland will brighten my day.
