Love the feel of the General Store and it is fairly close to the Hampton Inn we stay at in Minnetonka. It is a wonderful place to visit around the holidays and offer many great gifts and souvenirs of Minnesota.

Visited the store in September---lots of unique items from jewelry to home décor. Spent the morning going through the 2-level store. Loved seeing all of the unique jewelry but also enjoyed browsing the Pandora. Friendly staff... will definitely visit again if I'm ever in the area.

This place has so many things to look at - kitchen gadgets, holiday decorations, jewelry, clothes, candles, and just 'stuff'. Very fun place to shop.

Very rude staff telling you to get out. Not being able to exit the way you came in and having to walk around the building through two parking lots, just added to the negative experience. The place closes at 6pm. There's no need for staff to rush you out like cattle. It's not like the staff works till midnight or... More

Fun store to visit any time of year, but especially toward Christmas when shopping for unique gift items. I never leave there without buying something. It's packed with great items for yourself or for gifts.

A two story building full of kitchen gadgets, gifts, lake house stuff, creative toys, clothes, jewelry, etc. Try to give yourself one hour. They ship too! Great holiday decor.
