When it comes to Lanesboro, there’s not only food that you can try for the first time, but lots of new businesses to try out as well! As you may have read, Lanesboro welcomed ten new businesses this year: some were old familiars under new management, some were additions to existing businesses, and some were brand new ventures looking to add their own special something to the city. Now, if you can believe it, we have even more businesses coming in for the fall season, and even some planned for 2016. Lanesboro is hopping!
One of our new shops to try is Back Pedal, located right upstairs in our corner grocery, Beste Byen. You might remember them last week as the folks who sell that wonderful, Lanesboro-roasted coffee from Pedal Pushers, but all you have to do is head upstairs to enter a whole different kind of place. One look around Back Pedal’s bright, welcoming interior makes you instantly glad you hopped up the stairs: with antiques, furniture, clothing, and vintage items for re-purposing, it’s a little bit of everything that makes Lanesboro great. It’s all got the theme of a well-traveled life, with a thin-spoked bicycle wheel perched atop a classic wooden sled, perfectly blending the seasons and the outdoors with style.
In short, Back Pedal is an upstairs full of everything that makes Lanesboro Lanesboro: unique, fun, and not something you’re going to find in your average sort of place. Lanesboro is a haven for the home-made, the hand-made, and the heartfelt, something truly different along the banks of the Root River. Here at Lanesboro, we’re thrilled to have Peggy and Sara bringing their passion to town, and we invite anyone who wants to follow their bliss to consider Lanesboro as a business destination and as their new home. It’s because of all of you that Lanesboro is what it is!
Psst! If you’re a little farther north, feel free to check out what Back Pedal has to offer at the Junk Crush event in Lake City by clicking here! The event happens on September 12th and 13th, so if you’re looking for more re-purposing and fun, be sure to take a look!
