Chamber Celebrates Ribbon Cuttings And GROW Awards During Fun Filled Friday

Two Broken Bow businesses were welcomed to the Broken Bow Chamber of Commerce on Friday, December 3 with a third business being presented a GROW Award. Chamber Board members and area businesses began the afternoon welcoming Sandhills Custom Creations to the Chamber and community.

Previously Awards and More, Sandhills Custom Creations owners Chas and Trenton Fecht had decided to purchase the store from Art and Dianne Anderson earlier this year. Chas told KCNI/KBBN she began working in Awards and More learning the trade and making sure there was no ‘lag’ when the business changed ownership.

“I’ve always been artsy, so I really enjoy creating. This gives me the opportunity with no limits,” said Chas. “I’m really excited about that.”

While the ownership of the business and the name will change, Chas said they will still offer the same great services. During the ribbon-cutting last week, Chas also noted they would be adding embroidery to their list of services.

Sandhills Custom Creations is located on the west side of the Broken Bow City Square and is open Monday through Thursday 9 AM – 5 PM and by appointment on Friday. Chas said while there may be official hours, they are often in the store early and sometimes stay late.

“If the lights are on, stop in,” encouraged Chas.

Sandhills Custom Creations can be reached by phone at (308) 872-6078 or email at [email protected].

If you are looking for a tasty treat or food, Juanito is the place to go for traditional Mexican ice cream and other foods. On Friday, the business cut the ribbon to officially join the Chamber. Juanito officially opened its doors in June of this year following numerous renovations to accommodate coolers, food equipment, lowering the ceiling, new flooring, and updating the plumbing.

Juanito is open 11 AM – 9 PM Monday through Friday, and 3-9 PM on Saturday and Sunday. The store offers traditional Mexican ice cream, popsicles, tortas, burritos, quesadillas, carne asada, and more.

Juanito is located at South D and 10 Ave. in Broken Bow.

Triple Blessed Boutique celebrated the growth of the storefront last week as an additional 400 square feet was added after the purchase of the neighboring store, Ache and Pain Family Hair Care. Triple Blessed opened their doors in May 2018 after owner Jamie Eberle started selling clothes out of her home.

The renovation included adding new flooring and lighting which has brightened the store. Jamie said she is hopeful the added space will allow her to grow and expand inventory.

Triple Blessed Boutique is located on the north side of the Broken Bow City Square and is open Monday-Friday, 10 AM – 6 PM, and on Saturday from 10 AM – 3 PM. Triple Blessed offers a variety of clothing tailored toward women and children. For questions regarding clothing options, contact Triple Blessed through their website or call (308) 767-2029.
