Four Marshalltown businesses are celebrating 100 years or longer in a tribute at the Orpheum Theater tonight, October 14. Vic Hellberg’s family business is being honored tonight along with three others and says that the success is thanks to the community. "When there's four of us that are still here in the same family business that our ancestors started after 100 years," says Hellsberg, "it's just amazing.
After speaking with Jonathan Hall from Willard’s Furs, whose family business has been thriving in Marshalltown for 146 years, Hellberg says they added two other century old businesses and it all came together from there. The other two companies, Apgar Photography and McGregor's Furniture, are telling their stories tonight. And Hellberg says that the audience will hear their stories, "of being in business for over a century."
“Century Tribute on Main” will take place tonight at 7:00 PM. Tickets are available at the Orpheum, they cost $7.00. You can get them at the door and in advance.
The theater is located at 220 E Main St Ste 4 Marshalltown, IA 50158 . You can also reach them to reserve your tickets at (641) 752-4311.
