A new shopping adventure … Grand Depot

Just for the fun of it, on Saturday my brother and I decided to visit a store he had discovered while cruising the internet. He was looking for a particular paper towel/plastic wrap holder and this store promised everything for the kitchen and more. It’s a short drive from St. Cloud on Hwy 23 – but, as you will see, well worth the few minutes it took to get there.

The store is actually a depot that was historically located in Eden Valley, Minnesota. (For more about the history, click HERE).


When the weather is a little warmer, I think the outside area would be a lovely place to sit and relax.


The store (two floors) is full of a wide variety of kitchen wares, decor, gourmet food products, cards, clothing, jewelry, specialty ales and lagers, and more …






And even this great toy …


Did we find what we were looking for? Nope. But we had a lot of fun looking. If you are ever in search of a gift, this is the place to go.

Thanks for reading!

    I like going to the store Bed, Bath and Beyond and looking and looking! And when I die, I’m planning to go to The Great Bed, Bath and Beyond! 😉 😛
