List of Businesses Opening Up Across Minnesota

Here's the list of businesses who are already open or will be open by this Friday as part of the ReOpen MN Coalition and are willing to have their names public. If you don't see your favorite bar or restaurant on the list, call them up and ask if they are joining the effort to open up in defiance of Governor Walz' illegal order.

    This is beautiful, so exciting to see real people standing up against idiotic tyranny! I will be supporting!
    Also, very disgraceful to see the gov’t posting comments on this page, crap like “this isn’t gonna work, selfish, won’t be supporting, it’s over before it even started, etc.” All designed to discourage people from taking a stand, it’s physcological warfare, making you think you’ve lost before you even tried to fight. Don’t give up, we’re all going to fight, and we’re going to win! Screw the democrats and their attempt to get rid of the middle class!

    It’s not a dictatorship when it’s under extraordinary circumstances:

    “In Minnesota Statutes 2020, section 12.31, subdivision 2(a), the Minnesota Legislature authorized the Governor to declare a peacetime emergency when an act of nature endangers life and property..”

    So…the people you voted for WERE in on the decision. It’s tough. It’s unfair. But not unconstitutional.

    For those self righteous socialists, when one fool makes decisions on his own, thats called a DICTATORSHIP! WE voted for people to represent us and they must be included in this decision. If not, you have given up your freedom to ome dictator!

    What’s even sadder is when people don’t get that freedoms are NOT absolute. You don’t get to hurt others to get what you want. Any free society requires rules – rules which also cannot be absolute, especially in difficult or extradinary times.

    If they just follow the rules they can stay open. End of story.

    It is a sad time when free people are willing to give it up, because they believe government no’s best. I pray you useful idiots will see what is really happening here, and WAKE-UP. Freedom is not Free!!

    For those who are wanting to start donations to these people’s legal funds: why not raise money to help them pay their employees and costs while this is going on? Let me guess – not as exciting as thinking your donating to a rebel cause thinking your helping heros when theyre not heros.

    And for those who keep saying “dont like it? stay home”: Not that simple. I need to travel and eventually i will bump into one of those people that went to these businesses no mask no distancing and pass covid to me.

    THATs why rationale people are concerned. THATS why this is hurting people. Its not about peoples livelihood. Its about peoples LIVES.

    I suggest we all donate to the legal fund that will challenge Dictator Walz and support our business friends.

    Jean Labeau, thank you for your positive support! We’re only in it together IF you agree with these socialists. Maybe they could move to Oregon or Washington state, where their crap is taking over!

    Good riddens to Sharon Belanger! You’re s self centered self serving comrade of Dictator Walz. You are selfish not allowing people to make a living. This is a FREE country, if you don’t want to patronize these businesses, GOOD! We don’t want you to either. Take your communist ideologies somewhere else. BYE BYE!

    Please remove me from this page. I know businesses are struggling. Those businesses that have adapted are holding their own. Take out and curbside dining. I commend the businesses who are following the rules. These are the businesses who care about their patrons. These are the businesses that will get my support. Businesses who choose to defy the rules are selfish and will NOT receive my business now or any time in the future. By following the rules we will be safe and we can open up in the near future. The businesses that are opening up unsafely are extending the shut down and hurting other small business. Again remove me from this list.

    Way to go guys!!! For the first time in a long time I can actually say, I’m proud to be a Minnesotan!

    For those of you that don’t support MN’S FREEDOM, that’s ok…. you may stay home… just as I am respecting you, I ask that you respect us as well. No need for name calling, anger, hate… we’re all MINNESOTANS & I believe that if you truly knew what was at stake here, you’d have a little more grace & mercy for your fellow MN’S.

    My prayers are with you all.

    Again businesses that are opening are selfish. They are putting money above peoples lives. They are also prolonging the shutdown for the rest of us. I will NOT be patronizing these businesses now or in the future. These businesses are very unpatriotic.

    Latest news is that only a handful from this list actually opened. At least two of them are already gonna get their licenses pulled. And if they keep it up they’ll face fines and criminal charges.

    This isn’t gonna work these poor people are being led into a lost cause.

    All these people talking about this list being a guidepost to businesses they WON’T be supporting. . . . . . . I’m pretty sure they don’t care, Karen. No one wants a stuck up, entitled communist sycophant shoving their noses where they don’t belong.

    To the people that aren’t supportive of the many businesses that are standing up for their rights as an Americans, everyone of you are two faced because I am sure that you go to other places that are far more dangerous than any of these. So go to Wal-Mart, Menards, target etc. and keep believing that your government cares about your health more than their bank accounts! Fools!

    A message to the comment from Anne stating:

    “These businesses are stupid, the last 3 that tried it got their business and liquor licenses suspended until Feb. A second violation will result in a 5 year revocation, which will actually kill the businesses.”

    You don’t have a clue what you’re talking about, clearly. Many of these businesses will not get any of this money, they have to have had a THIRTY PERCENT DECREASE in business. If any business had a 30% decrease, they’d already be bankrupt. This is trash. And they would have gone out of business anyway, so they don’t care if they get ridiculous fines and other tyrannical lunacy thrown at them. It’s do or die and the “relief” package is rigged.

    How to create a communist state. . . . Slowly chip away at individual rights. Make the people believe it is for their own good/health. Create a situation where people and businesses need government hand outs to survive. Those businesses, owners and people then become dependent on the government. Now the government owns small businesses. Government closes all small businesses, forcing everyone to buy from big businesses, that give them money in return. . . But, hey, they saved us all from a virus that has a 99.5% survival rate!!

    Those who back the Governor are complicit in the destruction of our economy and the massive wave of depression and suicides in our state. We are an island. Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota and Iowa are open yet following guidelines to limit exposure. Do your research instead of blindly believing Walz. Some how he has become the self educated expert on virology and epidemiology.

    Sue do you go to walmart? Menards? or any other place thats open. Shame on you for only supporting big business. What makes them more safe. Most places have you wear a mask.

    Shame on you. Ignorance is NOT bliss. I will be keeping this list for future reference. I will never step foot in these establishments and will do my best to verbally bash at every chance. My personal health and liberties are being infringed upon by idiots who continue to disregard the dangerousness of Covid 19.
  • Roxanne Berglund

    Hope more will follow. Those who are scared to death (no pun intended) stay home. Quit infringing the rights of the rest of us who have done the math and like our odds of survival. STAY HOME! We supported your fears for more Than 10 months now. Time for you to start supporting the constitutional rights of those who are not buying into this anymore. This Governor and AG need to stop this abuse of power. Prayers go out to all these brave people.

    If big business can be open which forces more people there smaller businesses can run just as safe if not more. I support the smaller company owners then the big CEO’s making tons of money off this shut down. OPEN UP THE STATE!!!
