MUSCATINE, Iowa–Two decades ago, Darrin Hannah came to Muscatine to open a new Blain’s Farm & Fleet location. This year, on August 11, Hannah, along with many of his longtime employees and Blain’s Farm & Fleet CEO, Owner, and President Jane Blain Gilbertson, celebrated the store’s longevity and prospects for the future.
After 20 years in Muscatine, Hannah has found that he enjoys working with Muscatine County’s blend of urban and rural customers and has valued building relationships with them over the years. “I’ve enjoyed every minute here,” he said with pride.
On top of celebrating the store’s 20th anniversary, Hannah, Blain Gilbertson, and other local and regional officials recognized Muscatine who had at least 20 years of service with Blain’s. “We’re here to celebrate with the team for all their hard work, and we thank the community–we would not be here without them!” beamed Blain Gilbertson.
