Dime store still alive in Ida Grove

Selections, a dime-store style business, located on Second Street in Ida Grove, changed ownership earlier this year, when Tiffany Trierweiler purchased the business from Carol Koenigs of Mapleton.

The late Jerry Koenigs and wife, Carol, purchased Selections in 1993. In 2014, Trierweiler was working at Subway, “fixing Jerry’s sub everyday.” 

She said, “He had Carol call me and ask me if I wanted a job. I told him I was pregnant and my baby was due in January. He was fine with that. After Adalynn ‘Adie’ was born, I was having a hard time finding day care and told Jerry I might have to quit. His response was, ‘Bring Adie here.’”
