Kringle Place History
Kringle Place is the only shopping center in the town of Santa Claus. Originally named Holly Plaza when it was constructed in the 1960’s. Holly Plaza was purchased by Koch Development Corporation in 1997. The name was changed to Kringle Place and renovations have made it into a Bavarian/Christmas village befitting the town's heritage.
Kringle Place now features over a dozen businesses anchored by Holiday Foods Grocery Store on the south end, and the world-famous Santa Claus Post Office on the north end. The newest anchor is located in the heart of Kringle Place...the Santa Claus Christmas Store, a 6,500 sq. ft. retail store and tourist attraction featuring everything Christmas...from gifts and collectibles to outdoor commercial lighting displays. Other businesses include a Family Pharmacy, Brick Oven Pizza, Just Teasing Hair Salon, Price & Associates Law Office, The Santa Claus Museum, Spencer County Bank, and the Spencer County Visitors Bureau Tourist Information Center.
Ownership of Kringle Place was transferred to HO HO HOldings, LLC in May 2002. Kringle Place is a prime location for retail business as Santa Claus, Indiana has the fastest growing population rate in the state and attracts over 1 million tourists per year!
