Windom Store Celebrates 25 Years
Warner's Stellian started over 50 years ago in St Paul.
25 years ago this Saturday, a stalwart of Windom's business community opened up shop at the corner of Diamond Lake Road and Nicollet Avenue.
The party runs from 9 a.m.–6 p.m. There will be Peace Coffee, food catered by Broders’, a chance to win prizes and a donation presented to the Joyce Uptown Food Shelf in partnership with the Southwest Journal’s new fundraising campaign for the food shelf.
Three generations of the Warner family help run the local chain, the Journal reports, from patriarch Jim Warner on down to 10 third-generation Warners.
“There was no special plan on my part,” he told the Journal. “It just kind of happened as they got to maturity and took an interest in the company. There was always a place for them. Then they grew from there.”
