Joynes Ben Franklin
ecember 7, 1941, Howard and Rosemary Joynes set out on their vision of building a premier shopping experience on Lake Superior’s North Shore. They planted a small seed in downtown Grand Marais, nurtured it, and 75 years later their dream has grown into today’s Joynes Department Store and Ben Franklin. For those who live in the community, Joynes is an essential staple. For those who visit Grand Marais, the store is recognized as a North Shore Icon. It is often said, “If Joynes doesn’t have it, you don’t need it”. As you walk through the doors, you know this really is “No Ordinary 5 & Dime”.
