Woodcraft to Open New Retail Store in Iowa CityComments (0)
Iowa City and Johnson County residents are invited to 3 Escort Lane at 9 a.m. Monday, January 17, for the opening of a new Woodcraft Supply retail store.
Casteel is eager to introduce local woodworkers, DIYers and others to
Woodcraft’s line of quality woodworking tools, accessories and supplies. Based
on his market research, Casteel said he knows there are a lot of professional
and hobbyist woodworkers in eastern Iowa, as well as do-it-yourselfers, who can
benefit from having a woodworking store within driving distance.
Casteel discovered this need firsthand during COVID when he was at home a lot and doing woodworking and DIY projects. “In the quest for tools and supplies, I became frustrated at the lack of availability in the eastern Iowa/western Illinois region,” he said.
about our store location is exciting,”
Casteel said. “Not only is it easily accessible, regardless of which direction
our customers are coming from, it also provides us the opportunity for
expansion. Plans are already in the works to add an additional 3,500 square feet.
The additional space will house a dedicated classroom and allow us to expand
our already wide selection of lumber, including domestic hardwoods, sheet
goods, and hard to find exotic species.”
Woodcraft President and CEO Jack Bigger said,
“Woodcraft is happy to see Eric Casteel entering the Iowa City business
community and bringing the Woodcraft retail store experience to a new area in
the heartland of the US.”
