Handy access to the resort across the street for Milk, eggs, butter. Things you need for the kitchenette. Gift shop has some unique things. Have some products and dishes specific to Norwegian cuisine. Small casual eating area and kitchen.

This store was built in 1848 and has been handed down through 5 generations of the Borchsenius family. It has everything you might need: including beer and packaged liquor, fresh meat, seafood and Scandinavia food. There is also a barber on the property, Tues--Thurs.

Was very pleased with the amount of Scandinavian and wild game food items available, they have everything a corner store is expected to have plus a wide variety of the unexpected. Staff was very friendly and helpful with area information and shopping needs

Fun little general store. Don't miss the deep fried peanuts and the garlic wurst. Really loved the selection of sausages and meats. I heard the restaurant is good, but we didn't get a chance to try it yet. Neat atmosphere, check it out!

Open for breakfast. It was neat to see the history. Biscuits and gravy was good. Sausage patty excellent and bacon so good we brought leftovers home. Pancakes for kids. Hash browns tasted freezer burnt. Good hot coffee. Hit the spot.

Nice place. Has OLD wooden plank floor - wouldn't be surprised if it was 100 years old. If you ask the cashier if it is the "world famous Norway Store", she curtsies and says "welcome". LOL :) As others have noted, it's called the Norway Store, so it almost has to have Scandinavian stuff and it does. Food, T-shirts, coffee... More
