Our Story

Founded  in 1964

Brekke Fireplace Shoppe was started as Brekke Home Improvement in 1957, as a siding and window company by Al and Arlette Brekke.

In the early 60’s, customers were asking the Brekkes for fireplace equipment because the nearest outlet was in Minneapolis. Al Brekke decided to start selling fireplace equipment to meet this demand, and by 1964 the business became Brekke Fireplace Shoppe and only sold fireplace equipment.

Brekke Fireplace Shoppe is the oldest family-owned fireplace store in Minnesota and over the years has become known for carrying products on the cutting edge of the fireplace industry. The company currently sells wood and gas stoves and fireplaces along with stone and brick veneer, ceramic tile, and mantles to finish their fireplace installations.

Although the Brekkes have retired from the business, their grandson, Mark Nelson, continues to carry on the tradition of quality custom installation and above all, service and customer satisfaction.

Community and Family

Brekke Fireplace Shoppe is more than a business; it’s a family tradition deeply rooted in our community. We pride ourselves on serving our neighbors and are dedicated to making your home a place of warmth, comfort, and connection.

We had a great experience with Brekke, we instalation our fireplace a couple of years aggro and love it. We recently converted from LP to natural gas and they came out and converted the fireplace. The whole process was easy and all the staff we worked with were great. Thank you Brekke!

We had a great experience with Brekke — they helped us take out, design, tile, and install a fireplace transformation from a 1958 green granite to modern with wood burning insert. The whole team was super to work with — even giving us advice on tiles we were ordering from another company. Would totally recommend.

Been using Lopi stoves and been working with Brekke for over 30 years. The stoves and every one working at Brekke is the best. The installers were kind, professional and very detailed in what they did.
They went above and beyond to be sure that I was happy.
