The business, owned by Chris and Melissa Haarman, features a little bit of every- thing from electronic to home décor, toys to kitchen ware, and many other items, all which have been marked down from their original price. Items are either overstock from big-name stores or items that are in good condition that have been returned. “Any business at all in our town helps the people who are coming in,” said Oren Griffith, president of the West Lafayette Chamber of Commerce. “People may stop here in town for something else and then stop here at the store.” Chris said that the store opened about three weeks ago and has seen a steady stream of customers since then. “It hasn’t been too bad,” said Chris about the number of customers. “The front of the store wasn’t done for a while, but the more we got done on the storefront, the more customers started coming in.” Chris and Melissa originally had a store in Sugarcreek, but it suffered from a fire, so the couple decided to relocate their store to West Lafayette. the word.” She also said that customers seem to be satisfied with the products they offer. “The customers are happy,” said Me- lissa. “I don’t know how many times customers have come in and said that’s a steal. Just them coming in and getting something they wanted or something they didn’t even know they wanted has been fun.” The couple has a warehouse in Heath where they purchase their items. “We’re not in this to make a bunch of money,” said Chris. “It’s just something fun. We make a little bit of money and people get good deals.” The store is located at 103 W. Railroad St., West Lafayette, and is open Wednes- day and Thursday from noon to 6 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. “It couldn’t be more thrilling for me to see a new business come into the commu- nity,” said Mayor Stephen Bordenkircher. “I think this is the eighth business to open this year [in West Lafayette]. It’s been a nice growth spurt, and it’s really nice to have. If we can find new businesses to move in, it improves our infrastructure and our tax base.” For more information, find Haarman’s Pallet Treasures on Facebook. • Facebook: legacylaneslounge THE BEACON 9
