    The town of Pierz MN is an average community with great residents. This town has a lot of potential of growing. Every year Pierz MN is getting larger. More and more people seem to keep moving here because of its friendly atmosphere and convenience. We have everything you would expect in a little town population 2,500. We have a large historical catholic church,a catholic elementary school,a public elementary,a public high school, lots of public parks, many gas stations,a library,a town hall, a fire department, a grocery store, Theilen's Meat Market; which was named Best Meat Market in Minnesota on our CBS 4 news channel, and a Subway restaurant. Personally if I could do it all over again I would've moved into a larger city and went to a big university. But, plans always change and I am a mother now. I want to provide my daughter a stable environment to live in. So I'm attending college in a nearby city and raising my daughter in this beautiful community. She will be a small town kid just like me.
