Store Of The Month Jul 2024

How do you condense 17 years of business in a quick history? The building we have, some parts are over 100 years old and have a lot of history. But The Wooden Shoe’s history starts in April 2007. Christy, Elisa, and Val had purchased the then called “Wild Rooster” and gave it a new name “The Wooden Shoe Store & Coffee Shop”. A few years in, Elisa started a family and was bought out, leaving the two sisters to continue on.

In the first few years, we had worked hard to bring back customers and rebuild relationships with the Dutch import suppliers. Building new relationships and working to get to a common goal – bringing a little bit of Dutch to those who miss home. Global Reach being one of those suppliers who has been amazing to work with. When they bring us deals, we typically bring those deals to our customers too.

Our location is in the village of Gull Lake. The only shop in, well, the village. We carry a bit of everything: ice cream, camping supplies, gas and propane. We have a lot of Dutch imports and a restaurant as well. In our restaurant we cook and serve you croquettes, frikandel, nasi and bahmi schijf. Watch for our specials online, because sometimes its nasi goreng or stamppot. We carry local artists and the Wooden Shoe’s wooden shoe swag.

Some call us “the one stop drop and shop” or “the corner gas”. Come sit and visit us here at THE WOODEN SHOE STORE & COFFEE SHOP. ☕️
