The oldest continuous Scandinavian import shop in the United States

About Swedish Kontur Imports

Swedish Kontur, founded in 1962 by Anders Bjorling and his wife Janet started out by selling Swedish glassware, silver and textiles.

Their first business front was on the ground floor of their home. By 1967 the couple had outgrown their shop and rented a location in downtown Saint Peter. As business continued to grow the couple recognized they needed a more permanent storefront. In 1972 the couple purchased the Faust Drug Building, in the location the business occupies to this day.

Swedish Kontur is currently the oldest continually operated Swedish import shop in the United States.
