“Amazing Christmas”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Bronners Christmas Wonderland is nothing short of an out of this world experience in a Christmas store. It does take the best part of a day to go through all of it but every minute is breathtaking from the entry way to the checking out. I was on sensory overload there is so much to take in and the prices are good. There is a section for almost everything imagineable to do with Christmas. They had trees, wreaths, balls etc and the rest of the store with many different types, shapes sizes or ornaments. Christmas ornaments for everyone and everything. In the centre of the store is a big section for personalizatuon. I loved the area for snow villages and trains as well The exterior is not to be missed at night either, as it is well lit with lights and different scenes. They have a replica of an Austrian chapel that is lit up at night with music playing.
The town near , about a quarter of a mile, Frankenmouth is a sight to be seen as well as it is like a small Austrian village.

“Ornament Lover's Dream”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you are able to, I would advise you to visit sometime other than December, or at the very least through the week. We were there in the afternoon on the 9th and it was so crowded you could hardly move around the store. That was after we drove around for 20 minutes trying to find a place to park. There are lots, and lots of different Christmas items. A lot of them we felt were overpriced. They have every kind of Christmas ornament you can imagine. It was easy to find an ornament because they have them divided into different sections such as sport, occupation, color, religion etc.

“Amazing Christmas Shoppe”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Bronner's has what seems to be millions of Christmas decorations. They have ornaments in all shapes, sizes and decoration. You can find a bulb suited for anybody that's applicable to their job, hobby, sport, religion or interest of any sort. They even paint and personalize them. I'm not doing it justice and you have to see it for yourself. Like most guys, I hate shopping but this is one store my wife doesn't have to drag me along. It's a must stop when your in Frankenmuth.

“Wonderful place for families and CHRISTmas lovers!”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

I worked at Bronners for 15 years. It is a wonderful place to work and visit.
Most of the staff are very knowledgeable. Be sure to ask if you can't find something you are looking for. They will be glad to help.
There are lots of items made in the USA and a huge variety of everything.
Santa comes the day after Thanksgiving and is there until Christmas eve. They do NOT take pictures but you are welcome to bring your camera and take your own pictures.
They have a great "Seasons eatings" cafeteria style cafe, with lots of good things to eat. Including, the best Christmas cookies around! I know you and your family will enjoy it.
Wheelchairs and strollers are available. Beautiful clean restrooms.
