Hannibal quilt shop celebrates 40 years of business
A business destination in downtown Hannibal celebrates 40 years of business.
Hickory Stick Quilt and Gift Shop brings quilting groups and visitors from around the country to shop.
Owner Pat Waelder says you need to keep updating your store products to keep providing to the customers.
"Every year, you're going to have to change your store, you're going to have to reinvent it, at least 10 percent, because everything changes, especially in the local business. They want everything to be different every time they walk in the door," said Waelder.
Over the years, the business has garnered national recognition recently being named one of the top 10 quilt shops in America by a Better Homes and Gardens magazine publication, "All People Quilt".
