  • General Store is a good place to go for gifts with local flavor. I went on a Saturday morning in December and it was a little crazy. Had to park in the lot of the office building next door.  more »
  • Packed full of Christmas and Minnesota items, old, hard to find nostalgic things. Great atmosphere. If one check out has long lines, remember there is another one by other side of store. Great cafĂ© al...  more »
  • Cute little specialty store labeled as "General Store". Had tons of Christmas items, kitchen gadgets, souvinerrs, etc. Everything was so over priced though. And unfortunately it was extremely cold in ...  more »

  • LOVE this store!! If you are looking for something unique to give for any reason, go to The General Store. Buyer Beware, you will leave with more than you came for! It's 2 stories of amazing local vendors & trendy items. Another word of warning be prepared to lose time because there are so many things to see, but don't despair, you can always keep up your energy for more shopping by filling up in the cafe. The staff is friendly, helpful & will happily help you to fill your basket or two..or three!! What a great way to lose track of time!!
  • I have been visiting this store ever since I was a little kid. Back then, it didn't have the huge addition with a cafe and second floor that it has now. At the check-out, my mom would always let me pick out 10 cent candy (prices have since gone up!). I always looked forward to my special candy treat at the end of our shopping trip. We also took advantage of the personalized items on kids' stuff- Easter buckets, storage containers for crafts/toys. Even all these years later, they still do personalizing. As an adult, I still look forward to each visit. I always find cool new and unique items. And instead of my 10 cent candy, I might grab one of their luscious desserts and a coffee! Yum!
  • I absolutely LOVE this store. So many amazing unique things, gifts galore. And SO much stuff to look at. Truly something for everyone. Only gave it 4 stars though because the customer service could be improved. I waited at the register for a long time before someone finally helped me. Same in the cafe both with ordering a drink and being run up. It took forever. So long that I almost walked out with my drink. But otherwise I love it so much!!!
  • So many things to look at. Staff is amazing. The cafe has great soup. All the products are awesome.from the soups to the gloves. Really cool shop. Make sure you got a couple hours to really go through it and take it all in.
  • Step back in time! Great gift shop- I went for the local Minnesota stuff and wasn't disappointed. Gifts of every variety from clothes to candles to signs to retro candy. Lots of lake/cabin decor as well.
