Levi’s Crazy Days 2021

Levi's Crazy Days Deals & Fun!

Levi’s Crazy Days 2021 commenced at our Bloomfield and Hannibal locations on Friday, April 30th, and Saturday, May 1st with a weekend full of laughter, family fun, and crazy good deals throughout the store. The smell of homemade sandwiches filled the air, while the children scampered in to beat the heat and grab one of our free ice cream cones. The samples were flowing and introducing customers to some of the delicious foods we have. Families far and wide pulled in to find themselves greeted with many fun family-filled activities.

Live Entertainment and Incredible Deals

Things kicked off on Friday with live music by Tom Shadonix playing fiddle and guitar at our Bloomfield location. His folk music tickled the ears of all who walked through our doors. His folksy tunes could be heard the very next day at our Hannibal location, setting the old-fashioned feel ablaze.

The lively tempo added to the atmosphere as customers were greeted with unbelievable $10 doorbusters and incredible deals. Cast iron cookware, housewares, and inflatable outdoor toys were amongst the many discounts to be found. For those that enjoy the thrill of chance, our enter to win door prizes were the perfect opportunity. Topping the prize ladder, our grand prize consisted of many tasty and unique items that were featured on Dutch Country Kitchen, hosted by none other than our very own Erica Good and Billboard recording artist Diana Upton-Hill. For our younger customers, our “Look for Levi'' themed coloring sheet allowed them to showcase their creativity, and be entered for a chance to win a fun prize of their own!

Bloomfield Location Welcomed Miller’s Petting Zoo

As the event got rolling, Miller’s Petting Zoo opened its gates for the families at our Bloomfield location to come and experience the joys of the farm with their adorable array of baby animals. From baby goats to chicks and ducklings and one of the largest bunny rabbits we had ever seen, there was something for everyone. The joy on the faces of the kids was infectious. As the giggling echoed, the sounds of the animals were the perfect accompaniment.

Caricature Artist Fun

For visitors who wanted a more artistic memento to remember all of the crazy fun, our caricature artists Bill Beard (Bloomfield) and Jeff Niffen (Hannibal) were the guys to see! Putting a wacky spin on self-portraits, each customer had the chance to grab a free drawing. The artists swiftly and with the utmost ease, brushed their markers across their canvas and created drawings that captured the likeness of each person, and put a smile on everyone’s face.

A Fun-Filled Weekend to be Had

With the many fun activities, it was nothing short of a fun-filled weekend that we thoroughly enjoyed. It was a perfect way to ring in the beautiful weather, and celebrate the old-fashioned, family-friendly atmosphere we here at Dutch Country General Store strive for. We can’t wait to celebrate with everyone again next year, but until then, we hope to see ya real soon!

High School Graduate Spotlight

Congratulations to our 2021 Graduates

We are extremely happy to congratulate the members of our team that are graduating this year.

We love all of our team members here at Dutch Country General Store and we’re blessed to be able to share these major milestones with them. Congratulations to the class of 2021!

Wilson Brennemann

Wilson Brennemann is graduating from Palmyra High School in Palmyra, MO. He started working at Dutch Country General Store in June of 2020 and is part of our stocking and inventory management team at our Hannibal location. Wilson will attend Truman State University in Kirksville, MO to study Business/Finance.

Wilson's favorite thing about working at DCGS is the workplace culture that Dutch County provides.

"We are a family. It makes going to work fun and enjoyable."

The team has developed relationships that go farther than just the workplace. We have become friends.

Wilson is quiet, but has such a fun wit that will just sneak up and surprise you in a great way! He is always willing to help with any project and he is so great at interacting with customers when he happens to be on the floor stocking. You can often find him taking a minute from his work to have a great conversation with our store visitors.

Jay Froah

Jay Froah has been in Order Fulfillment with Dutch Country General Store for 2 years. After graduation, he plans to attend Faith Baptist Bible College for 2 years of Biblical Studies.

Jay’s favorite thing about Dutch Country has been the ability to try and learn new things.

“My time here has given me multiple different job opportunities.”

Lately, Jay can be found in our warehouse processing online orders (a.k.a. playing with stuffed animals and resisting the urge to eat all the food). He also enjoys interacting with customers at the register and on the poly furniture lot. Jay consistently brings a positive attitude and strong work ethic to any department he works in. We are so grateful to have someone like Jay on our team. He contributes to the uplifting and loving environment we strive for!

Xander Price

Xander Price is a Warehouse Associate and has been with Dutch Country General store for 2 years. After graduation, he plans to attend Indian Hills Community College for business trades.

Xander loves that his job allows him to drive to various locations and interact with different people.

"I really enjoyed driving products and materials around to different sites. It is fun to help a company grow!"

Xander is one of the silent engineers who work to keep all the rides roaring at our 'amusement park'! Primarily working behind the scenes in the warehouse or driving around, Xander is one of the hardest-working people you could ever meet. He is usually pretty quiet and likes to just come in and work, but anyone lucky enough to catch a Xander smile is sure to have their day brightened! We love having Xander on the team and are excited to celebrate his work with the whole town!
