A central location for home based businesses to promote their products. A place for home based businesses to host a party to sell their products. These are the ideas that Lori Hoppe had in mind when she created her new business – Party Central – located at 908 Main Street.

A one-stop shop for everyone, Party Central features handmade crafts, jewelry, boutique clothing, secondhand clothes, shoes, soaps, hand scrubs, Tupperware, healing creams, Scentsy, hair clips, crocheted items, cosmetics and purses. Many of the vendors also spend time in the store to get to know the customers better.

Hoppe said she wants the store to “feel like home” for all who come in.

“We have many gift ideas for weddings, showers, birthdays or just a new outfit for a night on the town,” she said.

Hoppe also has a room available that people can rent to host parties.

“Or I have scrapbooking supplies if they want to scrapbook with a small group,” she said.

The fee is minimal for the room rental and for the store’s vendors, as Hoppe is waiting to see how the store catches on.

“This is a busy world we live in and I want this to be a relaxed and fun environment for all who come in,” Hoppe said. “I want to be available whenever it is convenient for all.”

Party Central’s hours are Tuesday and Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Saturday, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.; and Sunday and Monday by appointment. These hours may change soon.

“If you have a family member that you would like to bring shopping on the weekend, just call me for now,” Hoppe said.

In the future, Hoppe will be living in the building so she could meet people at any time.
