Yetzer’s Celebrates 75 Years as Waconia Business
Waconia’s Yetzer’s Home Furnishing and Floor Coverings is celebrating 75 years in business this year, which makes it among the top tier of family-owned businesses in Minnesota.
According to the Sun Patriot, the long-time business even earned a proclamation from the Minnesota House of Representative for its long life. Waconia Rep. Jim Nash presented the proclamation.
“It’s really something fantastic, and I think it talks very strongly to the Yetzer family and how closely they worked together, how much of a part of the community they are—one of the hardest working families you will see,” Nash reportedly said after reading the proclamation.
Will Yetzer founded the store in 1941, and ran it with his brother, Stan, for many years. Stan Yetzer’s son, Steve, bought the business in 1988 and still owns it today, the newspaper said.
The furniture store is located at 33 W. 1st St. Click here to get to the store’s website.
