Three years into running the Stillwater Farm Store, former TV personality Rebecca Kolls will have to close the store or find a new home for it. 

According to the Pioneer Press, it's unclear why Kolls is losing the lease with the building's owner, but she has to be out of the shop at 401 Main Street South by the end of June. 

She told the newspaper that she's looking into a number of possibilities, including moving the store to a vacant building across the street, selling to a new owner or closing down for good.
