Business news from downtown Grinnell

Join Vander Linden Construction and S&S Appliance & Mattress as they celebrate their grand reopening on Friday, May 10, beginning at 3 PM. An open house with refreshments will kick off the afternoon, followed by a ribbon cutting at 5:30, and a drawing for prizes at 6.

Dave and Sue Vander Linden opened their 913 Design Studio downtown in 2017. Though the family business had been running for nearly 40 years at the time, the downtown presence brought in a fresh and new variety of customers. The storefront was open a little over a year when a fire from a neighboring restaurant in December 2018 caused smoke and water damage to the studio and surrounding buildings.
