50th Anniversary

Celebrating 50 Years

Homemakers is excited to celebrate our 50th anniversary in 2024! Through the dedication of our employees and customers, we have accomplished so much and cannot wait to see what the future holds.

In 1974, Carl and Ina Merschman opened our first store in Des Moines, Iowa. Since then our journey has been full of renovations, expansions, and constant changes with our customer experience in mind. Homemakers has truly come a long way and is proud to be a locally founded and family run Iowa business.

Thank you for your support as our business has continued to grow. Make sure to join our events, special promotions and giveaways to celebrate our 50th from June through September 2024!
