Since its opening in 1984, the General Store of Minnetonka, a family-owned business, has provided customers with endless products and gifts while maintaining a long- standing reputation of friendly and welcoming staff.
“We have changed with the times,” says founder and owner Gail Bollis. “We keep evolving and keep adding new products.”
This year, the store celebrates its 30th anniversary. From food, bath and body products, inspirational signs and home furnishings to a café and outstanding breakfast and lunch menus, the General Store has “gifts and goods and endless variety,” as its motto proclaims.
“We’re definitely a destination store,” says Jenny Putnam, a store buyer, who is also Bollis’ daughter. This holiday season, let store staff help you create a custom gift basket, and watch as they wrap it up all neat and pretty, or pick out a holiday ornament for them to personalize while you browse.
