I LOVE Penzeys Spices. Love. Them. A girlfriend of mine in St. Paul turned me on to them by sending me one of their awesome gift packs for Christmas one year. There was no turning back. Each summer when I visit my parents I ALWAYS visit the Grand Avenue Penzeys. When we stopped by my brother's in New Berlin, WI, we visited the one in Brookfield as well. The closest one to me in Jacksonville, FL, which is forever away. I do order on-line but there's just something about going into the store.
I just received a postcard in the mail that tells me a Penzeys is opening less than 10 miles from me. Hoorayyyyy! It's a happy day!
