MUSCATINE, Iowa–On November 6, 2020, Urban Farmhouse first opened its doors to the Muscatine Community. Bryce Henderson, the store’s co-owner, had seen retail space available on the first floor of the Hershey Building while assisting with the renovation of Hershey Lofts as the Vice President of Project Development for Bush Construction and knew it would offer the perfect location for him and his wife to open a new branch of their store. The community appealed to him, and he thought they would take to Urban Farmhouse’s special style of home products.
Ever since they started doing business in Muscatine, Henderson says Urban Farmhouse has received quite a warm welcome. “The entire community, whether it’s customers or other businesses or local officials, have been really supportive and we’re happy to be here.”
Urban Farmhouse offers home and lifestyle products for every room in the house, from serving ware for the kitchen to beautiful throw pillows and accents for the living room. They also sell gifts for all occasions including clever stationary and luxurious bath and body products, and items for every member of the family, including pets. In Muscatine, as well as at their Quad Cities and Geneseo, Illinois locations, they have found that time and again, their exclusive blankets and wide selection of Sweet Grace by Bridgewater candles bringing curious shoppers in and sending them home happy. “What we’re known for is our Bridgewater candles and our soft fleece blankets, but also our home décor products that you can’t find anywhere else,” detailed Henderson.
Not long after Urban Farmhouse came to Muscatine, the Greater Muscatine Chamber of Commerce and Industry reached out to them about joining. Always wanting to get involved in the communities they serve, Henderson welcomed the opportunity. “We were approached about being a part of it, and we always try to be active in communities we’re in, so we were happy to join in,” he shared.
Over the next several months, Urban Farmhouse looks forward to participating in several Greater Muscatine Chamber of Commerce events. Currently, they plan to serve as one of the stops on the Girls Getaway Weekend and to open their doors during upcoming Sip and Shop evening events. “Our plan is to get involved with anything that’s going on in the city and help support downtown,” Henderson emphasized.
Currently, Urban Farmhouse encourages shoppers to come pay them a visit at their 216 Sycamore Street location Tuesday through Saturday between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Their friendly staff, led by Angie, look forward to meeting you and helping you find exactly what you need. “Our staff on site is knowledgeable about our products and happy to help–we pride ourselves on excellent customer service,” shared Henderson.
