The Minnesota Store That’s In The Middle Of Nowhere But So Worth The Journey
Here in Minnesota, there is more than a little shopping to be done. After all, the Land of 10,000 Lakes is home to one of the largest shopping centers in the United States: the Mall of America. But when hundreds of stores – and thousands of steps – seem a little too daunting, there are plenty of alternatives. One of the best? An old-fashioned general store in one of Minnesota’s most charming towns. This store may be remote, but it’s well worth the drive.
