Four retail shops to celebrate opening in downtown Mt. Horeb

Big things are happening in downtown Mt. Horeb in April with four new businesses.

Big things are happening in downtown Mt. Horeb in April as four businesses gear up to celebrate opening their doors.

According to a release, the village is hosting a celebration for four new businesses the weekend of April 16 — which corresponds with the reopening of Mt. Horeb’s Streatery program on April 15.

The first business is Isaac’s Antiques which reopened in the fall under new ownership at 132 E. Main St. The release says the business will still be selling antiques, but it has been introducing new vendors.

Sugar Troll and Gempler’s softly opened their doors in Mid-March. Sugar Troll, which has the same owner as Grumpy Troll Brewpub, is Mt. Horeb’s first candy shop. Guests can find gelato, fudge, macarons, taffy, vintage sweets and craft treats. Sugar Troll is located at 122 E. Main St.

Gempler’s has been an ecommerce business since 1939 and moved its headquarters to Mt. Horeb two years ago. It recently opened its first retail shop at 109 E. Main St.

The last business to open in the area is Jangle Natural Living. It will officially open April 3. Jangle is replacing Isaac’s Soaps. Owner Janelle Holstrom started making goat milk soaps and other natural bath products in 2012 for her company Jangle SOAPWorks. Jangle will be selling Holstrom’s handmade soaps and other beauty products and lifestyle items.

All four businesses will be celebrating their recent openings in downtown Mt. Horeb on April 16 and 17.
