DETROIT LAKES - The sign above the front door inside the Marquee Gift Shop in Detroit Lakes sums up the store.

There is no place anything like this place anywhere near this place, so this must be the place.


For owner Kay Larson, it will be bittersweet to see the sign for the last time when she closes the door on the shop Jan. 30.

An office will move into the location on Washington Avenue across from Washington Square Mall.
