Minnesota's largest candy store looks set to become the world's largest

Minnesota's largest candy store looks set to become the world's largest

 


JORDAN, Min. –For 45 years, the Wagner family has owned the property off Highway 169 near Jordan.

Through sales of apples, pumpkins and squash, and 19 additions to the building, it's clear that the focus is now candy, even earning the title of “Minnesota's Largest Candy Store.”

“We're 27,000 square feet under one roof,” said owner Robert Wagner.

But Wagner has even bigger aspirations: two and a half times bigger.

“We're well over 27,000 square feet,” he said.

The store is set to be rebuilt not far from its current location: right across from 169 near the Jordan Supper Club.

The reason for the move? Highway construction, with plans for an overpass over 169 near the current building.

Wagner said the overpass will completely cut off highway access to his current store.

“Having that impulse customer is important, and losing direct access to 169 robs us of that,” Wagner said.

Wagner said he is set to get the site for the new store in a land swap deal with Scott County. In exchange, the old site of Wagner's candy store will be used for the new overpass.

The current store is set to close in 2026 with a new store to be ready a year later, assuming all goes as planned.

“This is not 100% a done deal,” Wagner said. “I would like to say that we have very solid gentlemen's agreements. There are good handshakes.”

With the new looks set to become the biggest candy store in the world.

“What we will do is we will remain the largest candy store in Minnesota, but please know that we are the largest in the world,” Wagner said.

The store is set to reopen for the season on May 1 at its current location.
