Rydens Border Store
If you have intentions of crossing the U.S./Canadian border in the future, you’ll want to make sure you keep Ryden’s Border Store on your radar for two reasons: one is for its location and the second is because of the goods the store offers.
Ryden's Border Store has been a family owned business since 1947 and is located only a half mile from the US/Canadian border and five miles north of Grand Portage. Though it is close to the border, when you visit you’ll feel like you’re a world away from everything else.
The store offers the essentials such as food and gas. You can also find souvenirs and gifts along with a Duty-Free shop. They specialize in a Parcel service, money exchange, and sell world famous jerky (which you can order online if you’re not up for making the trip). Their parcel service starts at $3 for packages under 40lbs. If Ryden’s does not have it, “you’re being too picky”.
