Former WCCO-TV personality Rebecca Kolls at a crossroads with her Stillwater Farm Store

She bought the feed and craft store in April 2015.

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.

When Kolls took over the store in April 2015 she developed it from an animal feed and seed outlet for local farmers into a shop that also sold accessories and gifts related to home, cabin, farm, garden, kitchen, kids and pets. 

The store is known for Kolls two dogs, Cash and Cooper, greeting customers when they walk in.

Prior to owning the Stillwater Farm Store, Kolls was a meteorologist at WCCO-TV and host of the "Rebecca's Garden" show. 

Kolls still works full-time as a consumer strategist for Minneapolis-based CEB Iconoculture, according to the Business Journal. 

BMTN has reached out to Kolls for more information.
