Two Different Businesses, One Main St. Center Location
Two local businesses located in the same facility celebrated their ribbon cuttings today in the Main Street Center.
Down Home Primitives, a local retail shop, and Mutts-N-Suds, a pet grooming facility, welcomed the public to their event, which was hosted by the Edmonson County Chamber of Commerce.
Ken and Mary Puckett, owners of Down Home Primitives, said even though their business had been located in the Main Street Center for a year, the ribbon cutting was a good opportunity to celebrate their growth with a one-year anniversary event.
"When we started here a year ago, we only had a handful of Christmas stuff," said Mary. "We didn't feel like it was the right time to have a ribbon cutting. But since we offer much more, we thought we'd celebrate our anniversary with the ribbon cutting and open house."
Mrs. Puckett, a native of the Sweeden community, said she loves running a local business. "You couldn't hire us to move out of Edmonson County," she said.
The store offers primitives and holiday and farmhouse decor, many items of which are handmade by the Pucketts. They can be contacted at 270-597-8475 or 270-779-4784 or on Facebook.
The retail store shares a facility with Mutts-N-Suds Pet Grooming, owned by Priscilla Abrams, which also celebrated the event today.
Mutts-N-Suds offers your pet baths, nail trims, ear cleaning, and blow drying. Abrams said they are a full-service pet grooming facility.
"Brownsville really needed this," she said. "No one else really offered this here. We used to operate through mobile grooming but we wanted to set up something here. We wanted to be community-involved and finally, here we are."
They're open Monday - Friday 8am to 4pm and can be reached at 270-597-1119 or on their Facebook page.
Chamber Director Rhonda Clemmons said it's always good for the chamber to welcome new businesses.
"Most people think of only one business when there's a ribbon cutting, but here we had the unique opportunity to celebrate two businesses at once," she said. "We're happy to welcome both Down Home Primitives and Mutts-N-Suds to the chamber, and we wish them much success in Brownsville."
