Word of the sale comes almost one year after the house, located at 3159 West 11th Street, hit the market. The listing included more than just Ralphie’s home.
“There is a whole campus here. There’s the gift shop, the museum, Bumpus’ house, some parking lots. It’s really a campus here the owners have developed this into,” previously said Chad Whitmer with Hoff & Leigh Commercial Real Estate.
It’s not yet clear how much the property and business sold for. The original listing did not give an asking price, but realtors said they expected “a high level of interest” and “significant” offers.
According to the updated post, the deal is expected to be finalized by the end of November. That’s when the new owner will be introduced, but in the meantime, the owner’s note: “Operations will continue as usual during and after the transition.”
A Christmas Story House and Museum is currently open year-round.
