About Us

Sugar Bowl opened its doors in Storm Lake, IA in 1905. It began as a local hangout for college students serving the very popular “kistwich” sandwich and drinks from their soda fountain.

Sugar Bowl became a Hallmark Gold Crown store in 1952. Always located in downtown Storm Lake, the 5,500 square foot gift shop now sits on the corner of Lake Avenue and West 6th Street in the former JCPenney building.

Sugar Bowl prides itself with great merchandise at great prices and excellent customer service. We offer free in-store gift wrapping all-year-round with any purchase and take pride in our hand-made bows to top off your perfect gift. From our baby and kids department, kitchen and housewares, dishes and cookware, Vera Bradley, Yankee and WoodWick candles, Tervis Tumblers, Willow Tree angels, Iowa and Iowa State clothing and collectibles to so much more.

We hope you can make the trip to see our larger in-store selection. We always have something new at Sugar Bowl.
