Shopping

Fill your cart, car, closet and home.

National name-brands such as H&M, DSW, HomeGoods, Macy’s and JC Penney can be found alongside familiar fast-food dining options at the sprawling Crossroads Center. You won’t have to venture far beyond the mall’s perimeter to find other big box players such as TJ Maxx, Old Navy, Hobby Lobby, Kohl’s, Target and Dick’s Sporting Goods.

If family-owned is more your style, you’ll love Copper Pony in downtown St. Cloud, and on your way you can drop by local fashion favorite Evelie Blu Boutique. In Sartell, you’ll find the latest styles at MacKenzie’s and Near + North. Or head west for one-of-a-kind home goods at Weathered Revivals in St. Joseph and expansive rows of decor, gifts, culinary goods and more at The Grande Depot. Score deals on secondhand clothing at Clothes Mentor, Plato’s Closet and upscale consigner Margot Mundi’s in Sauk Rapids.

For fans of antiques and repurposed items, you’re in luck! Not only does Greater St. Cloud host Junk Junction, an annual vintage and salvage shopping extravaganza, but local shops such as Modern Barnyard, Rusty Pick and Salvage Sisters give locals and visitors alike a chance to discover new-to-them pieces every day.

Crafters rejoice in 120,000 square feet of supplies at Crafts Direct, while quilters stock up at longtime textile retailer Gruber’s Quilt Shop. Adventure enthusiasts can buy the best outdoor gear at Fitzharris, Scheels, Clearwater Outfitters and Viking Land Harley-Davidson.
