Newburgh Country Store opens under new ownership

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

The Newburgh Country Store opened Tuesday under new ownership. 

Debra Rhodes said the building needed some tender-loving care. 

But her company, RE:CREATION DESIGNS STUDIO, specializes in that field.  It was a natural fit. 

The store carries home goods, old fashioned soda and candies and regional, handmade gifts.

Rhodes says the community response has been amazing and she's excited to carry on the tradition.

“We've just heard story after story from so many people,” said Rhodes.  “And this building has been a part of their lives.  They'd come here as young children.  They had their hands in the cracker bin.  They've played checkers here, they've looked forward to the candy and the sodas.” 

“So, moving into this building meant there were certain things we just had to still keep as a part of the country store,” Rhodes added. 

The store is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
