At the base of the the hill in quaint Ellison Bay, this highly visible retail building is easily accessible from the main street with ample parking and prominent lighted signage. The covered front porch and board-walk lend an old-time charm while the large street-facing windows provide excellent display opportunities.
The approximately 5,500-square foot Ellison Bay Marketplace houses the 3,000 sf+ Silly Goose Shop as its anchor, and offers an additional four storefronts that can be combined, or divided as needed.
The 55+ car parking area opens the door to creative operators...how about a food truck round-up, or a farmer's market, or a weekend festival?
Or maybe you're looking to expand your concept just for a month or two, or try out something new...open a POP-UP-SHOP, and launch the next big thing in Door County!

Units 2 & 3 - LEASED (Silly Goose General Store)
After 46 years in business, the owner of the Silly Goose has decided to retire and is planning to list the iconic Door County business for sale. What a great opportunity for someone to come into Ellison Bay with an energized business vision!
Silly Goose General Store, spread out in a spacious setting, is a store with a little bit of everything. Whether you’re a tourist or a local, Silly Goose has what you need.
Silly Goose General Store has had four locations in Door County since the early 1960’s. The owner being one of the original developers of Founders Square in Fish Creek, Silly Goose was once located where the present-day Hide Side Corner Store is. It was also located where the present-day On Deck is located in Sister Bay. Now, Silly Goose has been solely based out of their Ellison Bay location since 1995.
Each carefully decorated room throughout the store is beautiful and each one better than the last! Gorgeous housewares and décor, holiday themed items, fine soaps, lotions, and candles, Silly Goose sweatshirts, t-shirts, and hats, a large selection of wine and spirits, gourmet coffee’s, teas, jams, and other pantry items, garden décor, books, stationary, dishware, glassware, and a large display filled with fresh fudge, cookies, and candies. There is even a wedding-themed section that included picture frames and champagne buckets, as well as a ‘man’ section that included gifts for dad and grandpa.
Silly Goose General Store is located at 11996 Hwy. 42 in Ellison Bay. Interested in finding out more about this iconic Door County retail property? Call Rich Rusnack at 707.294.8541 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
