Howard and Rosemary Joynes established this third generation family-owned and operated general store in 1941. Over 75 years later, the Joynes Department Store and Ben Franklin prides itself on outstanding customer service and quality brand-name products. For those who live in the community, it's an essential staple. For those who visit Grand Marais, the store is recognized as a "North Shore icon". It is often said, "if Joynes doesn't have it, you don't need it". Once you walk through the doors, you'll find this really is "no ordinary five and dime!"
