While Max's offers a selection of contemporary gifts and a slew of distinctive chocolates, it is the cases of fine jewelry that set apart Ellen Hertz's shop. With a focus on fine jewerly by artisan designers, including Vicente Agor, Todd Reed, Rebecca Myers, and Aaron Henry, you'll find many non-traditional statement pieces at this boutique.
From the moment you walk through the doors of Max’s at the Shops at Excelsior & Grand in St. Louis Park, our hope is that you’ll know that you’re in for a different kind of shopping experience. Founded in 2006, Max’s has built a reputation as a jewelry store unlike any other in the Twin Cities. Chic and casual, we feature artist designed-and-made fine jewelry and home décor, and specialty chocolates from around the world. We strive to have as many exclusive relationships in Minnesota as we can with our designers so that we can present a selection to you that you aren’t seeing elsewhere in town. We look for designers with a flair for color, a commitment to quality and a sense of their own distinct style. Take your time exploring the ever-changing variety of items in a store that prides itself on helping you find that perfect thing. And then there are the chocolates. By now we’ve all heard that some chocolate can be good for us -- right?!?! That’s great news for those of us who believe that chocolate is one of the basic food groups. Max’s has some fabulous chocolates, whether your looking for a hostess gift or something to carry with you during the day “just in case”. So, jewelry or chocolate, or perhaps something for the house or a gift, we hope that you'll stop in. Our commitment to you is that Max’s will do everything it can to make sure you enjoy your shopping experience with us.
