“An absolute must!”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Haven't been here since I was a kid. Going through a divorce and brought a friend with me as well as 2 teenage boys. Thought for sure the kids would howl about going but they are the one's who had to be dragged out after 2 hours. They have an ornament for absolutely everything. The friend bought a gaming keyboard one (??) I wanted to replace some of the vintage bird ones my mom had and sure enough, they had very similar ones. No, they are not cheap, but my Christmas tree is an expression of who we are and I'm not Walmart. Was VERY crowded so if you can go during the week, do so. People have no concept of what it means to keep moving and just stand there, blocking the aisles. My advice, ask and employee for an ornament box and forget the cart. You can maneuver much easier without it. If traveling in a group, have everyone do there own thing and use your cell phones to meet up,.

“You'll get lost in Christmas!”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

The place is huge, and it is easy to get lost, go early to avoid the crowds. You can spend a fair amount of time simply looking at the displays, and yes if you want can buy anything even closely related to Christmas. They also have ornaments and items for other holidays. They have a lunch area, which is nice, but seems rather bland as compared to all the decorations in the rest of the store. It is all handycapped accesible, but much of it is carpeted

“CHRISTmas 361 days a year”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

This is the world's best Christmas wonderland. Since I live near Frankenmuth I take my son every year to pick out a ornament and have it personalized. Bronner's have everything and anything CHRISTMAS just be ready to pay for it. I have enjoyed it since I went there as a child with my parents. I will be back every year with my family.

“Fun place to spend a little time”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

What a great place to find almost every ornament imaginable and so much more. Very organized and very large. They really do have lots of choice and carry a ton of variety. Lots of photo ops and outside was so pretty all decorated and lit up especially at night. The staff are very helpful. Lots of free parking and no entry fee. This store started way back in 1945 and is lovely to visit for people of all ages.

“For Christmas ornament lovers!”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

It would take the better part of a day to go through the entirety of Bronners. You like ornaments? They got ornaments. Beautiful ornaments. Ugly ornaments. Fun ornaments, dumb ornaments. And everything in between.

My one disappointment is that, while they have Christmas music playing non-stop, they don't sell the music they have playing. As a matter of fact they have an incredibly tiny selection of Christmas music.
