TCL in Your Town: Nordic Ware Factory Store

TCL in Your Town celebrates the best of Saint Louis Park. The west metro suburb is home to 45,000 residents, the West End shopping center, and is the birthplace of the Coen Brothers along with the Bundt Cake Pan. It’s made by Nordic Ware, a family owned company, which got its start back in 1946. Next door to their factory in Saint Louis Park is the Nordic Ware Factory Store. And as Twin Cities Live reporter Kelli Hanson found out, not only can you shop for your home kitchen there, you can also learn how to cook an easy sheet pan dinner.

The Nordic Ware Factory Store is home to quality cookware, bakeware, microwave and barbeque products, kitchen tools, accessories and factory close-outs. They also host cooking demos twice a month. For details, head to the Nordic Ware Factory Store website.
