Brekke Fireplace Shoppe Building or Showroom

Visit Our Website

We are the oldest family owned hearth store in MN. Larry Richardson, the owner, has been working at Brekke's for over 35 years. We offer both gas and wood burning fireplaces, stoves and inserts. Our manufacturers are leading the way in design and build quality and have won several Vesta Awards. One manufacturer still provides us with any part they have ever manufactured in their 30+ years of business. We have an onsite warehouse which allows for easy pick up for the do-it-yourselfers. We also install what we sell. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service. We listen to what a home owner wants and give them ideas as to what will and will not work. We do free estimates and prefer to meet home owners at their house to see the space available so we can make the best recommendations so you are satisfied with your purchase.

Company History

Brekke Fireplace Shoppe started as Brekke Home Improvement in 1957 by Al and Arlette Brekke. In 1964 the name was changed to Brekke Fireplace shoppe and sold only hearth products and accessories. Larry Richardson, son in law of Al and Arlette, is the current owner and has worked here for over 35 years. Mark Nelson, grandson of Al and Arlette, has worked at Brekke's since the age of 15. He currently has 18 years of experience in the hearth industry. The business moved locations in 1974 and has remained in that location since. Brekke Fireplace Shoppe provides expert installation, by our crews, and excellent customer service.

Facilities & Showroom

We have a 1300 sq/ft showroom with a warehouse attached. We also have a stain room and metal manufacturing area for custom installations.

Services We Provide

Our service department is not that big, because we sell great products that do not need a lot of service over time. We have two people that answer the phone and try to help the customer out as much as possible to save them money on a service call. Most problems can be fixed by the home owner. We do have a service technician should they need parts replaced.


Our stone work is some of the best in the area. We also sell custom outdoor gas fire pits and glass doors, too.
