This landmark for Marine was built in 1870 and was once called the Company Store. James Taylor Dunn notes that the store "carried on an expanded business in general merchandise and lumbermen's supplies" and is "one of Minnesota's historic landmarks still used for the sale of general merchandise."

The store has a history of father-son ownership. Charles Strand and later his son Roy ran the store from 1914 until Carl Malmberg and his son Ralph purchased the store in 1962. Garrison Keillor, a frequent visitor to Marine and seasonal resident in the late 1970's, used to say on his weekly "Prairie Home Companion" radio show, "If you can't get it at Ralph's, you can probably get along without it."
