New business takes over familiar locale


WILLMAR -- The latest addition to the downtown Willmar business community is Whirled Up, a nutrition club offering Herbalife shakes and other products.

Whirled Up is located in the former Northern Grounds coffee shop at 333 Litchfield Ave. S.W.

Proprietor Brenda Rouse opened a month ago. She calls her meal replacement shakes "fast food in a cup that tastes like dessert."
