Dyersville Ambassadors Visit Goodwill and Country Junction

The Dyersville Chamber Ambassadors have been busy with visits these past couple months…

The Ambassadors recently stopped by Goodwill to welcome them to Dyersville. The new Goodwill store is located in the former Conquest/Jebba’s Bar and Grill building on Fourth Street Southeast (just a block from downtown). Goodwill spent several hundred thousand dollars remodeling the building’s interior and exterior. Goodwill Industries spent this fall collecting donations of gently-used clothes and other items in the store’s parking lot and officially opened its doors on November 20th. The retail store is open seven days a week.

The Dyersville Chamber Ambassadors also visited Country Junction to welcome new owner Dave Buchheit. Buchheit, who is also FarmTek’s Vice President of Operations, purchased the restaurant from longtime owner Tom King in August. Buchheit says the restaurant will remain committed to providing a family atmosphere for its customers and employees. His goal is for Country Junction to represent the great foods of the Midwest and move towards as much locally produced food as possible. For example, the restaurant is currently using fresh lettuce from the FarmTek Hydroponic greenhouse. Buchheit is also working on bringing in local specialty foods and goods to Country Junction’s gift shop.

The Dyersville Ambassadors also recently held a ribbon cutting a Pierce PC Care. The computer sales and repair business recently opened in a new location at 215 1st Avenue. The Ambassadors also welcomed new Dyersville Golf and Country Club manager Randy Stevens and new Dupaco Community Credit Union manager Jim Doyle. And they also visited with Divine Word College Associate Director for Development Mark Singsank to celebrate the college’s 50th anniversary. (Photos courtesy of Dyersville Chamber)
