Hello Everyone –

I hope you are enjoying the summer months in the water or at least around water, while fishing, boating, or possibly, operating a wave runner. The temps and dew points have been up so please be safe, staying cool and hydrated.

We are highlighting a business in this issue that has been an important cog in St. Cloud area for some 90+ years.

They just enjoyed their one year anniversary in the month of June and invite you to see the increased floor space and expansion of their offerings of both available brands of appliances (high-end appliances, such as Wolf, Sub-Zero and Fisher-Paykel brands) and the sheer quantity of models on the floor. M&H staff are following Covid-19 safety protocols for your health concerns at our store and while performing service calls at your home. Read more.
