Partial History of the
Walloon Village General Store
The Hass Family
One of the first grocery stores in the Village. Later destroyed by a fire in 1907.
The Ransom Family
Operated as a grocery store, soda fountain, and bowling alley for many years.
The Spalding Family
Offered delivery to the North Shore by wagon during the summer months.
The Renwick Family
Purchased from his father-in-law, Mr. Renwick later sold the store in 1963.
The Penfold Family
The Penfold family brought great changes to the store in the 1990s with the addition of seating and their signature deli sandwich "The Wallooner". After 24 years in business, the Penfold's retired.
The Borisch Family
A brand new build, the Borisch family is looking forward to a renewed general store complete with the long standing traditions the Resort Community has cherished for many years.
How One Developer Singlehandedly Saved The Village of Walloon Lake
In recent years, the Borisch family has transformed the once-weedy pass-through into a draw by opening retail shops, restaurants and a 32-room hotel next to a circular village green park.
