-- West Liberty – The Primitive Homestead, a charming primitive and country décor store will reopen for business on Monday, June 4, 2012 at 10:00 am. Three months ago, a deadly tornado swept through a small town destroying stores, shattering churches, ravaging many homes and devastating citizens. Dorcas Burton owner of Primitive Homestead and her daughter were confined to their van watching the tornado ripped through town and her store. This Monday, the Primitive homestead will be open for business in a new location.
The lesson taught through this is to be thankful for everything that you have -- your family, your job, for everything -- because you never know, I’m happy to be back [West Liberty], said Burton
The Primitive Homestead is open Monday – Friday 10 AM – 6 PM and Saturday 10 AM – 2 PM in their new location off of HWY 460 on Elam Street just outside city limits. The store carries a variety of country, primitive and antiques items from primitive dolls, country style pottery, furniture, wreath stands, candles or any other primitive home decor products for both inside and outside the home or office. The Primitive Homestead can also take special orders for those special occasions call (606) 743-3810.
With many helpful volunteers and many countless work hours, the small town of West Liberty will be restored. “We want to see Dorcas and all our other businesses stay in Morgan County. I promise the people, the businesses owners of West Liberty that Mayor Rupe and I will do everything possible to restore our city,” said Judge – Executive Tim Conley. People have been so good to help our community, and I ask that we support our returning businesses.”
The Primitive Homestead owned and operated by Dorcas Burton started business in March of 2003 on Main Street in West Liberty. The store will reopen in a new location off of Highway 460 on Elam Street on Monday, June 4. A grand opening is being planned for mid – June.
