Wally Bronner was born and raised in Frankenmuth, MI. His father was a skilled mason and contractor who spoke German to his children at home. After high school Wally started a sign and display company that grew into doing outdoor Christmas decorations and eventually into a Christmas store on Main Street.
From that small store Bronner’s Christmas store has grown to over 300,000 square feet, the size of 5.5 football fields. In that building you will find over 50,000 trims and gifts and 250 full time employees. The business has grown into a wholesale operation to over 1,000 other Christmas shops, a catalog sent to over 5 million people and a rapidly growing internet operation.
It is a sight to see!
