A recent kid shopper gave the store an “A+” and we couldn’t be more proud!
REST IN THE REST AREA.
Take a rest in the True North National Park Rest Area. Pick up some brochures; make a wish in the pond; watch to see if you can catch our 5 critters in a canoe moving, and use one of the three public, all gender restrooms. Relax at the picnic table and view the vintage slides. There’s even a free drinking fountain. We get it. The store is huge and you may need to rest.
