Shopping at the Grand Village was fun and felt very safe during the covid period, as face masks were worn by the helpful workers, and required for the patrons.

We enjoyed shopping here while on vacation. There are a lot of unique specialty shops. The shop employees were so friendly and helpful. We bought lots of treasures! The area was very clean. We are looking forward to visiting again.

If you love Christmas, then make it a point to shop at Kringles. There are a couple of boutiques that sell cute dinner clothes, so support your local businesses.
