Friday in Franklin County: Koerner Whipple & Fireside Gifts

Friday in Franklin

Fireside Gifts is located within Koerner Whipple Pharmacy!  And, Koerner Whipple Pharmacy has been a business on main street in Hampton as long as I can remember.  Originally, Koerner Drug opened in the late 1950’s and then Bruce joined in 1974 to make it Koerner Whipple Pharmacy!  They are both a fantastic asset to our community!

Now, Koerner Whipple & Fireside gifts are owned by Bruce Whipple, Todd Wragge, & Wendell Speake.  They’ve also put together a strong team of ladies that keep the stores going! Personally, I think the ladies are the key to their success! I got to know many of them while I was working on main street in Hampton as well and they are fantastic!

The pharmacy offers a full-service pharmacy (prescription and over-the-counter items) along with health and beauty aides.  They have a photo kiosk for customers to print their own pictures, offer UPS drop-off services.  I’ve always been intrigued by their selection of candy as well!  Also, they are a Hallmark authorized dealer, which means they have a very extensive line of greeting cards.  They also stock the Hallmark Christmas ornaments!  At Fireside Gifts, they offer a variety of home decor, scarves, candles, food items, Iowa & Iowa State collegiate items, and wine!

When talking to manager Cindy and the ladies, they told me that people are often suprised at the variety available in their stores!  The ladies told me that the best thing about working Fireside Gifts is getting to interact with the public.  They also feel good knowing that they are a part of a thriving main street!  They also say that bringing great products and services to the community is the best part of being a business in Franklin County!
