Treasure City

Want to own a piece of Minnesota tourist history?

Treasure City, which has occupied a large spot on the side of Hwy. 10 in Royalton since 1962, is on the market.

The sprawling gift and souvenir shop, which its owners say is the biggest in central Minnesota, is on the market for $450,000.

That is, $450,000 for the property. If you want the huge array of inventory inside, that'll likely cost you a further $400,000.

Along with its distinctive Pirate Pete sign outside, the shop is also home to the 200-pound "man-eating clam," a curiosity that has earned it a place as an America roadside must-visit.

Inside is a huge range of gifts, toys, games, souvenirs, and Minnetonka moccasins and sandals.

A popular stop-off point for Twin Cities travelers on their way to the Brainerd Lakes Area, the current owner is selling so they can retire.

It generates a gross revenue of just over $500,000-a-year, with the estimated annual earnings for the new owner sitting at around $115,000.
