About The Bavarian Inn Retail Shops

The retail stores at Bavarian Inn had their beginning in the Bavarian Inn Lobby in 1960. Clara Block was hired to sell African Violets, fresh brown eggs, and stollen bread. A store was added in 1965 where Tiny’s Dining Room currently is located. Here, jewelry and gifts were sold. In 1966 the Bavarian Inn added restrooms and a much larger gift shop on the same lower level, eliminating the lobby shop and the first floor gift shop.

Tiny Zehnder’s sister, Ermia “Bowsie” Nuechterlein, was the buyer and manager of the gift shop for many years. She had such passion for the retail business. She loved to buy and sell. The success of the gift shop led the way to more and more shops over time. Today there are 7 unique shops in the lower level of Bavarian Inn Restaurant called the Castle Shops.

Our traditional gift shop, now named the Royal Gift Shop, is loaded with women’s accessories and gifts from around the world. You can also to find traditional beer steins from Germany here.
