Now open!
The most wonderful time of the year is here again, and with it all of your seasonal favorites: Snow Babies, Enchanted Forest, and plenty of H.C. Prange's department store classics.

Bruce the Spruce
Saturdays through December
10:00 a.m.-noon
We are proud to be the home of the original Bruce the Spruce from the Green Bay Prange's department store! For those unfamiliar, Bruce is a large Christmas tree who lives at the North Pole with Santa Claus...but it wasn't always so. Legend has it that when Bruce was a young sapling, Santa landed his sleigh in the North Pole Forest on Christmas Eve to take a short nap before his long night of work, and would have slept right through Christmas if the talking tree hadn't woken him up! From then on, Bruce could be found at Prange's near the holidays every year spreading Christmas cheer to shoppers and their children. Make sure to check out the calendar to find out when Bruce will be awake entertaining visitors!
