Faribault Woolen Mill is a well-loved company in Faribault, in all of Minnesota, and around the country! They actually had such huge success in 2020 that they have now opened a fourth retail location. This will be their third retail location in Minnesota.

Faribault Woolen Mill's retail locations include the one that's part of the mill in Faribault, one in Chicago, and one in Minneapolis. This fourth location is also up in the Twin Cities area in Excelsior.

This new location is will be in the "historic Miller Block building, in the heart of downtown Excelsior", according to Bring Me the News. This puts Faribault Woolen Mill just a few blocks from Lake Minnetonka.

Just a few days ago, on March 16th, Faribault Woolen Mill shared a video on their Facebook page of them getting all set up to open their Excelsior location. The post says "We are open! ... Come say hi to us in Excelsior!"

Fairbault Woolen Mills president and CEO Ross Widmoyer spoke with Minneapolis St. Paul Magazine about the decision to open their fourth location in Excelsior. He said, “'We have an enthusiastic fan base in the western suburbs of the Twin Cities so it only made sense to open a new store where our customers live, work and play.'"

The address for their Excelsior location is 234 Water Street, Excelsior, MN, 55331.
