I remember shopping at Rau's when I was a kid. My husband and I enjoy shopping there every time we return to Frankenmuth. It's old school country charm! You definitely will have fun looking at all the goodies and deciding what you want to buy....More

Typical of the places that pass themselves off as a country store. Lots of souvenirs and candy at high prices. Tourists may love it but not me.

A must-stop in Frankenmuth. Love the old time general store feel. Also huge selection of unique puzzles, signs, and other cool items. The only reason I didn't give the store five stars is because they got rid of my favorite part. I loved the dollhouse...More

We were excited to go here but on arrival we asked where the restrooms were located. We were rather rudely told to go across the street. It was weird, okay I get you don't want tourists dirtying up your facilities, but be a little nicer...More
