This probably will be the most interesting commercial real estate listing for sale you'll see today. A longtime business in Northern Minnesota is up for sale. It's a prime location for retail or office space. But, if you want the fish business too, there's an option for that. Did I mention there are snakes in the basement?

World Of Fish has been in the location since 2007, but they've been in business for the last 51 years. The owners are selling the location at 5211 Miller Trunk Highway in Hermantown Minnesota.

It was listed in May of 2023 for $465,000 by Coldwell Banker. They recently dropped the price to 398,000. It's a prime spot in Hermantown, with lots of traffic passing by on Highway 53.

Usually, when you hear there's a snake pit in the basement in real estate, you run. But this is actually a good thing.
