A Note From Levi Regarding the Coronavirus Outbreak

Dear Friends, With news of the Coronavirus, we, at Dutch Country General Store would like to let you know that we are implementing some enhanced measures to ensure your safety, and the safety of our team, while still providing the service and products you have come to know us for. With that in mind, we wanted to update you on the actions we have taken in response to the outbreak. Here’s what we’re doing: • We’ve enhanced our already robust cleaning techniques of all areas, including not only customer areas, but also our warehouse, packaging room, ice cream and coffee area, and deli areas. We are also cleaning our facilities frequently with recommended sanitizing products and encouraging all employees to have increased vigilance about frequent hand washing. • While we are known for our wide variety of free food samples in store, we are suspending this practice until further notice. Unfortunately this also includes our free popcorn, however we are still offering free ice cream cones and free coffee, as always. • In addition, we are taking steps to ensure the welfare of our team. This includes instructing employees who feel ill to stay home and consult their healthcare providers. Rest assured, we look forward to seeing you and want to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to promote a safe and pleasant shopping experience. As always, if you would rather shop by phone or online and have your order shipped to you, we are here to help. Please call us at 641.722.3678 or visit www.dutchcountrygeneralstore.com. Take care and keep the faith,


2019 has been an exciting year, and this final month on the calendar is proving to be the icing on the cake. Not only do we get to celebrate the birth of Christ, but we also get to announce that a second location for Dutch Country General Store will be opening in “America’s Hometown”, Hannibal, Missouri in Spring 2020. 

If you haven’t been to Hannibal, Missouri I highly suggest you take your family (or your pretty girl) down there for a visit! We looked all around the midwest for places to open another store, and I’ve got to tell you that Hannibal stood out loud and proud. We will be located in the historic downtown, but in all honesty, the whole town is pretty historic. 

Being the home of Mark Twain (who is almost as funny as me) is what they are most famous for down there. You know, he’s the guy that wrote the stories about Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn? Turns out those stories and characters are all based on people and places in Hannibal and the adventures Mark Twain had when he was growing up there along the banks of the Mississippi! Back then his name was Samuel Clemens. Someday I’ll tell you how he decided to change his name, but that’s for another day. Anyway… they also have caves, riverboats, haunted historic mansions and more.  And in Spring 2020 they will have their very own Dutch Country General Store!

We have been very blessed to continue to grow and expand this year. Our new cooking show, Dutch Country Kitchen, has become very popular. Looks like my wife, Erica, and her friend and co-host Diana Upton-Hill, may be back in 2020 with more recipes. Our website continues to grow as we have added many, many new products that all have my stamp of approval! We are shipping products all over the place to every state you can imagine! We also made the INC5000 List of Fastest Growing Companies again this year! And now we have announced a new store coming soon. There is just so much to thank God for.  

And I want to thank you, all our great new friends (and the old ones, too) that we meet in-store and online every day! You are a blessing to us and we are thankful for your business. We look forward to seeing you again in 2020 online or in our stores in Bloomfield, Iowa and Hannibal, Missouri! Stop by and see us real soon!

Merry Christmas to you and yours,

Ok ok… they also asked me to include the “official press release”.  Here it is… (click the image below)
