Default Anyone/good shops in Minneapolis area?

I just moved down here yesterday. Wondering if anybody is around the area? Or if there are any good shops around? I am in Blaine. So leave a message or shoot me a PM.

Richard

3 Stars Sports is pretty good, it's in Roseville, not sure how far away it would be for you though

Lived 23 years in Minneapolis. Go to Toms in Mounds View, great selection of boxes, real nice guy, and not spendy There used to be a chain called Shinders that was the absolute best. They all went under tho after 90 some years.

yeah the maple grove store is there, but its under different ownership, its not even close to the same. They had them in Maple Grove, Crystal, Eden Praire, Ridgedale Mall, Roseville, Burnsville, Inver Grove, Maplewood and a few more. Each had a massive selection of very cheap singles and good boxes.

I never really paid attention to the packs there, but the singles were really nice.

I think there are only 3 big ones, Savage, Roseville, and Mounds View, all of which are at least half an hour from my house

Snelling to County Road C, head east to Hamline. Go north on Hamline about 1/2 a mile. They are in a strip mall on the west side of the street next to a laundry mat.
