It's hard to tell what the status of this business is, but here's the message that appears as of 8/31/2014 on the Fast & Furless website,

"Sorry Folks, We're Down.

But not for long.

Fast and Furless is undergoing an exciting transformation: from a Minneapolis storefront serving the Upper Midwest into a big, brand-new website reaching the four corners of the earth.

F&F has a nice selection of all sorts of vegan items. It was the first place in town I was able to find those new vegan candy bars, made by Go Max Go. It may be a bit on the pricey side, but come's the only vegan store in town and it's a local business. The owner is very friendly and sometimes his dog is hanging out there with him. :)

this place may be overpriced a tinsy bit, but it is convenient to have an all vegan store and resource center available within the twin cities. i don't think many people realize that it is a luxury.

John is super nice. I bought some awesome chapstick & cookies. I liked the shoes. I liked how it was in a cute house.

The fact that the Twin Cities has a vegan clothing store at all is amazing. It's definitely "gutsy" as another reviewer commented and I commend and appreciate the owner for his dedication and courage. Their new location on Franklin Avenue is chic and modern and full of space. I bought a pair of shoes there for a good price (they were on sale), but I do wish they had a larger selection of shoes. In fact, I think they should dedicate less space to bags/purses/belts/wallets, and focus most of their energies on shoes for men and women. As it stands, they have a decent collection and the sale-price shoes are affordable, but most of the rest seem to hover in the $120 range, which is way too high. Also, many pairs had limited sizes in-stock (the "bell curve" sizes from men's 8-10 were usually out of stock). So, the store has some room to improve, but as it stands, I will be shopping their again in the future.

I give this place a 10 because it's gutsy to be the 1st to open an all vegan boutique in the Twin Cities and have excellent customer service. I love that I can go and see some of the products I've found on vegan websites up close. I bought a pair of shoes there recently and although they weren't the cheapest pair of shoes I've ever bought, the price for vegan shoes doesn't get much better anywhere else. Reality is, a lot of vegan shoes are expensive. My only complaint is that the place doesn't carry more items. I hope people go and check it out and buy something - even if it's the cheapest item in the store to show support for being an all-vegan business in the Twin Cities. Someday soon, maybe the owner will be able to expand and have more square footage and a much larger selection.

Aside from the prices, I loved this place! Jon was very helpful and even called restaurants in the area for us to find yummy vegan food! I will definitely go back!

They have a really nice supply of vegan hand creams and lip balms (pretty hard to find elsewhere in the Twin Cities). They also carry Sunflour Baking Company Cookies (yum!). The rest of their merchandise, however, is very expensive (shoes and handbags), though they did say that they will be displaying more (hopefully cheaper gift items)soon.
