Marquette holds ribbon cuttings for four businesses


Formerly Go America, the convenience store in Marquette became a Casey’s General Store in October. Although the signs have changed, store manager Julie Simon said the awnings are currently being redone to look more like other Casey’s stores. For those looking for Casey’s famous pizza, Simon said you will have to wait—at least for a few months. Casey’s would like to build a new store nearby, in which there would be a nice, new kitchen. If not, the store’s current kitchen will have to be remodeled.

Established in 2002, Kirby’s Creations Salon opened in Marquette on July 1, in what was the old theater. “The clients love it,” owner Sandy Kirby said of the new location. “That two miles means a lot. A lot of people from Prairie du Chien like that they can just come across the bridge.” Pictured (left to right) are Marquette Business and Tourism Director Katrina Moyna, City Manager Dean Hilgerson, Mayor Norma Mason, Owner Sandy Kirby, Felecia Halverson, Councilwoman Rinda Ferguson and City Clerk Sue Weipert.

Opened earlier this year, the Driftless Area Wetlands Centre offers educational opportunities for students and adults alike to learn about the natural world and local environments—everything from local plant and animal species to the area’s geological history.
