Amish Warehouse to close


The Amish Warehouse Furniture and Gifts, 141 South Main, in Cedar Springs, will be going out of business. Bob and Betty Truesdale, owners of the business for 24 years, have decided to retire and sell their shop and home at the corner of Main and Church Street.

The Truesdales began their business 24 years ago, out of their previous home on 14 Mile, east of Cedar Springs, then moved to a location in the Cedar Rock strip mall, where they did business for 8 years.  After that, they bought the property at 141 South Main and had their business and home built there.

Bob said that whoever buys the property doesn’t have to use it as a furniture store, but they could if they wanted to. “It could be anything,” he said.

Bob noted that the closing has nothing to do with the issues he’s faced on City Council. “I just decided I didn’t want to die in a furniture store,” the 81-year-old explained with a chuckle. “We plan to spend time with our great-grandchildren in Ohio, Indiana and Florida.”

The Truesdales are grateful for customers who visit their shop, and hope they will continue to visit as the stock dwindles. “We are very thankful to the clientele that we’ve had,” said Bob.
