RED WING, Minn. (KTTC) – A world famous bakery is expanding its legacy to Red Wing, Minnesota. Across the Mississippi River, The Stockholm Pie and General Store in Stockholm, Wis. is best known for its award winning pie.
On Wednesday, the Red Wing General Store had its grand opening, bringing a gift boutique and of course, the famous Stockholm pies to the river city.
Store owner Alan Nugent says the secret in the renowned pie is in the crust and whipped cream. He encourages folks to eat the whole slice, guilt free. “You look at it and its an indulgence absolutely, but its one of those things that you don’t have very often,” Nugent said. “It takes you back to another time and place, and it is absolutely worth it. And if you’re having apple pie or cherry pie, that’s fruit! It’s gotta be good for ya.”
The Red Wing General Store is located on the second floor of the historic Pottery Place.
