Ribbon cutting

Cook’s Home Furniture in Kane held its ribbon cutting Friday afternoon.

It’s an exciting weekend for Calvin and Gail Cook, owners of Cook’s Home Furniture, as they celebrate the opening of their new location, in the former Roy B. Constable store in Kane.

The new expansion will bring well-known furniture brands, a wide variety of lamps and accessories as well to area residents. A special offer of 20% off anything ordered in the store through today is waiting for shoppers who visit the store. The official ribbon cutting ceremony was held yesterday at 4 p.m.

Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Additionally, store manager Ann Bokma, said that Cook’s will be changing the name of their former location, located at 27 Fraley St. to ‘Cook’s Amish Home,’ which will now feature all Amish handmade furniture.

“The Cooks have always had a good relationship with the Amish and decided they’d like to bring that here as well,” noted Bokma. “They have another store in Somerset that they’ve had for over 20 years.”

Some furniture will come from local Amish communities, while others will be sourced from places in Ohio and Indiana.
