Business is booming in Parker

Sarah Ebeling | Editor 

A meet and greet is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 20 to showcase new businesses in Parker. Southeast Enterprise Facilitation Project is hosting the event which will take place at the Parker Community Building from 7-8 p.m. 

Taking part in the event are businesses Turbulent Games, B&D General Repair, TJ Kerners, Countryside Impressions and Dandelion Wishes. 

Turbulent Games opened in February and is owned and operated by game lovers Keegan Batson and Russell Carlson. The duo opened their doors to help make more people aware of board games and socializing and connecting in a family setting. The business, at 242 N. Main is open two evenings a week and on the weekend. 

B&D General Repair opened their door last month and owner Dan Gray said that after being a mechanic for 17 years, it was time for him to open his own repair shop. Gray’s business, located on 4th Street in Parker, is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

TJ Kerner’s is opening its doors later this month. New owners, Shawn and Shannon Laird will reopen the Main Street “basement” bar and will offer drinks and an assortment of menu items to the public. 

Countryside Impressions will open their doors in Parker next week. Owners Jason and Jessica Kleinsasser wanted to sell unique items with a general store theme filled with western/country products.  Located at 238 N. Main, hours for the new business are Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

Located right next to them is Dandelion Wishes, owned and operated by Shannon Kleinsasser. Connected to Countryside Impressions, at 224 N. Main, Kleinsasser said her store will be a gift shop, full of hundreds of different items with everything from clothes to jewelry, household and so much more. Business hours for Kleinsasser are Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

Everyone is welcome to next week’s meet and greet.
