Register Editor

But that’s nothing compared to the two hours it took makeup and set design wizard Cary Kann to complete the first-ever transformation.

You never get a second chance to make a first impression—and apparently Elkader’s downtown merchants don’t need one. 

According to the results of a recent survey, rolling out the welcome mat is just business as usual for shop owners and businesses located here.
