Shop Small

Can’t make the Holiday Stroll event? You can still shop small and find some great holiday deals all month long at many of our great retailers. Here’s what a few of them have to say about shopping small this holiday season.


What does shopping small mean to you?

It supports our family, this modest purpose, our 20+ employees, their families and organizations in this community.


What do you recommend as the perfect holiday gift?

We have an entire Minnesota line that is always fun for anyone local, candles, slippers, home decor and lifestyle products. We also have gift cards that fit ANY size!

What does shopping small mean to you?

It means that our business gets to support the organizations that are important to Morris, such as schools, churches and community events. We offer what the big cities don't, namely, personalized care and service with a smile and knowledge of the products we sell.


What do you recommend as the perfect holiday gift?

Give something from the heart that you know the giver will appreciate. We offer gift cards, so pet lovers can stop in and pick out what they need, or even bring in their pets and go shopping with them! We have had that happen here many times before, from dogs to cats, bunnies to bearded dragons and even a macaw!


Any holiday specials?

We will plan daily specials store-wide. We encourage people to stop in and take a tour of our store,say hi to our resident sun conure, named Ricky as well as hug a bunny or two

Johns total entertainment

What does shopping small mean to you?

Small business owners in general (or at least myself and Levi) love helping people and helping them discover, find, learn, and purchase the things they love.  Hopefully, we provide a product or service you need and enjoy. 


What do you recommend as the perfect holiday gift?  

Our store really is about fun and entertainment.  People sometimes think of us as a "Kids" store, but if you are 3 or 103, if you take time to look around the store you will find something you like.


Any holiday specials?

We will run some discounts on board games and other products in our store for black Friday and during the holiday season.  The best thing to do  is stop in and see what's happening.
