Michigan Is Home To The World’s Largest Christmas Store & It’s Truly Magical
It's Christmas all the time here.
Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland, an enormous Christmas store in Frankenmuth, Michigan, is the largest in the world! The building stretches out over 95,000 square feet. The place is bound to have the perfect decorations and gifts for anyone looking to indulge their holiday spirit. There are around 50,000 ornaments for sale including bulbs that say “Merry Christmas” in more than 40 languages and decorations from across cultures with 35 different countries represented.
Most of the decorations cost under $20 and there are several photo opportunities throughout the complex that are free!
The company, which opened its doors in 1945, promotes itself as the “World’s Largest Christmas Store.” The Communications Assistant for Bronner’s told Narcity that they are aware of all other exclusively Christmas stores and none have topped their size.
To give you an idea of just how many decorations are stuffed into this holiday wonderland, imagine almost two football fields packed with mini Santas and sparkling evergreen trees!
Many of the bulbs are Bronner’s original designs. You won’t find anything like a beautifully crafted pair of glass ballet slippers or a sparkly pickle in ornament form at most other places.
It’s a family-friendly place that offers a Santa meet-and-greet that nearly 20,000 children attend every year. It’s also a great date night spot as the display of lights outside is just as breathtaking as the tinsel inside.
In fact, the 100,000 lights that line its driveway are so brilliant that Bronner’s electric bill averages $1,250 every day.
Even people all the way down in Florida know about the store since that’s the location of their most distant billboard.
That might seem like a strange use of their advertising budget, but since you can buy most of their items online, there’s no limit to who can get their holiday cheer here.
The joy of Christmas is never out of sight at Bronner’s.
