DGKN staff report
KIDRON Lehman’s, the iconic old time general store in Kidron, is hosting the grand re-opening of their popular housewares department the week of June 5 to 10. With an expanded area from 4,100 square feet to 5,000 square feet, the remodel allows for Lehman’s to delve into new and expand existing categories like canning, food preservation, baking and cooking supplies and an expansive cast iron selection, according to a news release. In all, they offer over 10,000 different products in housewares alone.
“We refreshed the space to highlight our huge assortment of practical and pretty items for your kitchen,” said Cameron O’Neill, Director of Merchandising. “We worked with key vendors to expand our product lines but still carry the tried-and-true products we are known for, like the Amish made rolling pins, spoons and dough whisks. We are using antiques for some of our displays so we can incorporate the old with the new. Visiting Lehman’s is like going to a museum and going shopping at the same time.”
Housewares products, along with cooking and heating stoves and fireplaces, have always been a focus at Lehman’s.
“When you are good at something you need to build upon that strength,” said O’Neill. “We strive to be an experiential retail destination and we believe in reinvesting back into the business to
create that for our customers. We always believe in treating our customers, suppliers, and each other as we would like to be treated and this was a great partnership.”
With all new custom lighting provided by partner vendors, locally manufactured and made fixtures and flooring, the housewares department is adjacent to the newly remodeled Lehman’s Café, featuring soups, salads, sandwiches, desserts and old-time glass bottle specialty drinks.
To celebrate, there will be a Deal of the Day Monday through Saturday, June 5 through 10, along with a gift basket giveaway each day of the week. The first 200 customers that arrive on Saturday, June 10, when the store opens at 9 am will receive a free Mason Jar Mug and coupons for the store.
