Business Changes Hands Again

What A StitchSheldon, Iowa — For the second time in less than a year, a Sheldon business is changing hands.  In June of last year What A Stitch, a custom embroidery store in uptown Sheldon, was sold by Village Northwest Unlimited to the owners of The Printing Edge.  Later this month, the store will once again have new owners.

April Schaeffer is part of a group of local investors who are buying the store.  She told us how the group came to purchase the operation.

Schaeffer says the current owners indicated that they wanted to sell the business in order to get out of the retail side of things.  She says that the purchase is only for the What A Stitch business, and does not include The Printing Edge.

She says the group of investors buying What A Stitch is comprised of current Sheldon business people.

Schaeffer says that the new owners will begin operation on March 23rd, and that the sale will include a name change.

She says that, although the name of the business will change, folks will still see familiar faces working in the store.

The new owners will officially take over on March 23rd, and Shaeffer invites people to check out the store, and visit them at the Sheldon Home and Design Expo on March 28th.
