There are many businesses that have come and gone here in central Minnesota. It was recently announced that Wendy's on St. Germain Street has officially closed its doors. I used to frequent this Wendy's a lot in college. It's always bittersweet to see a business go after so many years.

One of my favorite things to order was a malt. Seriously, is there anything better than a chocolate malt at Wendy's? Of course, I always had to ordered a side of fries to dip in the chocolate goodness--don't judge. It was delicious. The good news is, we still have two other Wendy's in town.


This morning I'm reminiscing about other businesses that used to be in this area that are gone and I miss like crazy. Some of them include; the old Dip N Dots at the Crossroad's Mall, the old dollar theater in the same complex where Famous Dave's currently resides and the Big Lots along Division Street.

What business do you wish would come back to the St. Cloud area that was here and is now gone?
