Celebrating Our 20th Year on Galena's Main Street!

We're now eight months in to our 20th year! In August of 1998, Connie Allendorf and Colleen Yonda opened up Wild Birds Unlimited in Galena artist Carl Johnson's building at 206 S. Main Street. In November of 2006, Julie Bruser and Tom Saccomanno purchased the business and took over from Connie and Colleen, who retired from the retail trade.

August of 2017 began the store's 20th year on Main Street, thanks to the many hundreds of customers who have "shopped local" for their wild bird supplies as well as unique gift and garden items. Thanks also to the thousands of tourists who have stopped in our store while exploring beautiful Galena. And thanks to a great staff for providing exceptional knowledge and service. Currently, our staff includes Maureen Bardusk, Karen Galer, Lisa Monterastelli, and Karen Strenski.

To celebrate our 20th year, we will offer a different "free gift with purchase" each month up until August of 2018, when we'll have a big 20th anniversary celebration. Stop in this month to take advantage of our current offer.

  • Buy any nesting box and get a FREE bag of Alpaca Wool Nesting Material, a $9.99 value.*

Offer good only at the Galena IL store on in-stock nesting boxes; expires March 30, 2018.
