The store has been taken over by a highly popular attraction of the region and even the state in 1976 featured the Embassy of Michigan tourism. Over two million people visit the store each year, making their shopping in a fairytale setting. The Bronner was founded in 1945 by Wally Bronner, who earned his nickname Mr Christmas. One of the most remarkable buildings of the complex is the Chapel Silent Night, a copy of the original, located in Oberndorf in Austria, where carols were written. At this point there is a collection of plates, on which are written carols in various languages.
