Where to Find Winter Coats, Boots, and Other Winter Gear to Survive Minnesota Winters

I'm not sure about your kids, but mine had a huge growth spurt this past year.  My baby is now towering over the rest of the family at 6 feet 3 1/2 inches with a size 14 shoe and he just turned 15.  I had him try on his coat from last year and it was a ridiculous sight and was WAY too small.  I obviously don't need size 4T clothes anymore for my kids but I did need to find something that would keep him warm.

If you are realizing that your kids need a new coat, boots, hats, mittens, or snowpants for this upcoming winter season, check out these spots that women in Rochester are recommending.
