A.J.'s Diner in Southeast Minnesota Is Closing For Good

Some sad news showed up on social media on Saturday.  A.J.'s Diner, located at 122 Highway 52 in Fountain, Minnesota (Get Directions Here) announced that it was closing for good.


Thank you everyone for the continued support! As our family gets older new priorities arise. We hope to see you one last time before our closing day, which is Saturday November 18th. 🍔 - Ajs Diner Mn Facebook page


When people heard the news that A.J.'s Diner was closing, support poured in as people got a chance to experience their favorites one last time before closing day.  According to the latest Facebook post, the restaurant was so busy that they had to change their "Last Day Open" to Friday instead of Saturday due to a lack of food.

Thank you everyone for coming in this weekend! We were busy and only have enough food to be open one more day. Last day will be Friday. Closed the rest of the week and Saturday. -Ajs Diner Mn Facebook page

Popular Toys "R" Us Making A Comeback And Opening Soon at Mall of America in Minnesota

One of the stores that I wished I could shop at all the time when I was a kid was Toys "R" Us.  My small town in Iowa didn't have this iconic store but it was always on my list to visit when we went to the "big" town.  It was basically a kids' paradise and I was crushed for kids today when I heard that the company was shuttering all of its stores.

Well, kids are going to get another chance to experience this epic store because a huge Toys "R" Us is opening at the Mall of America this week!  If you missed that announcement, get caught up here.
