MOTTVILLE – Opening the Mottville Emporium on the corner of Jordan and Crow Hill roads was a multifaceted decision for proprietor Deb Holbein, but it one that was incredibly easy to make.
The site, which houses the Mottville Post Office, was formerly run by the Stengers, who also ran The Bead Studio out of the same facility. When Holbein heard they were planning to close up after several years in business, she saw a golden opportunity.
“Somebody had to take over the post office,” Holbein said. “I’m a stay-at-home mom, so part of my decision is that I just have a 10-door commute to get to work every day, just living up the street. So I get to do this and still be close to home.”
