New Housewares Shop ‘HomeGoods’ Now Open In Riverfront

Looking for a new spot to get housewares, furniture, kitchen and bath accessories and more? A new business is here to help. Located at 1851 S. Christopher Columbus Blvd. in Riverfront, the fresh addition is called HomeGoods.

HomeGoods—which has locations throughout the U.S.—specializes in homeware accessories curated from sources around the globe, generally offered at 20 to 60 percent lower prices than traditional retailers. 

Expect to see a variety of products like furniture, lighting, bedding, wall decor and home accents, dinning and kitchen items, accessories for pets, and more. 

HomeGoods has just one review on Yelp, which gives it a four-star rating thus far.

James R., who was the first Yelper to review the new spot on November 9th, said: “New store; it is attached to a TJ Maxx. It is large and clean but very crowded.”

Intrigued? Stop in to try it for yourself. HomeGoods is open Monday–Saturday from 9:30am–9:30pm, and Sunday from 11am–8pm.

Electric pressure cookers are a hot item

Are you considering asking for — or giving — an electric pressure cooker as a holiday gift?

Sales of pressure cookers, both traditional stovetop models and the new electric “multi-cookers,” are up more than 25 percent in the last year, according to Consumer Reports magazine. The first electric pressure cooker to hit the market now has more than 630,000 followers of its official Facebook page. And websites devoted to pressure cooking are another indication these cookers are gaining a new audience.

The main draw of pressure cooking is faster meal preparation, according to Consumer Reports, but the versatility of the electric cookers is enhancing their popularity. Here are three reasons why an electric pressure cooker might be a consideration for your kitchen:

1. Options, options, options. Electric pressure cookers are built with a number of cooking options. Some brands can serve as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, saute pan and warmer. But beyond what the electric pressure cooker can do is the short time it takes to do it. Pressure cooking with pressurized steam raises temperatures above the boiling point of water and makes the cooking time much faster. The versatility allows the cooker to be used for every course of the meal from appetizers and main dishes to side dishes and desserts.

2. Set it, then step away. Traditional stovetop pressure cookers like the one my mom used when I was growing up always have given fast, tender, delicious results. But they require more attention in the kitchen to regulate. With the new electric models, the guesswork and monitoring is gone. A variety of built-in safety features — ranging from locking devices to digital timers to pop-up indicators — allows the cooker to do its work while the cook can do something else.

3. Quick clean up. Many of the meals prepared in the electric pressure cookers are one-pot meals which greatly reduce cleanup time. Even if using accessories like a steamer basket or small liner pan, clean up is limited if much of the meal is prepared in one appliance. Be aware, however, the electric parts of the cooker cannot be submerged in water and must be cleaned by hand.

Are you interested in knowing more about pressure cooking and the new electric pressure cookers? Find the Consumer Reports article at www.consumerreports.org/kitchen-appliances/electric-vs-stovetop-pressure-cooker/.

Utah State University Extension also has published a brand comparison of electric pressure cookers that might be helpful. Go to www.extension.usu.edu/publications and use the search function to search for publication “FN/FoodPreparation/2015-01pr”.

Our Extension pressure cooker demonstration next week is already full. If you would like handouts from the program, contact the Hays office of the Cottonwood Extension District at 601 Main, Ste. A, in Hays, or call (785) 628-9430.

If you were not able to attend the Hays program, or if you’re surprised with an electric pressure cooker for Christmas and need the information later, the Cottonwood Extension District will repeat this program on the evening of Feb. 6 in Barton County. Watch for more information about the repeat session from the Cottonwood Extension District offices in Hays and Great Bend.

Final Design moves to storefront in St. Joseph

Not that long ago, Erin Bennett operated a custom kitchen and bathroom design business out of her home.

But her longtime dream was to have a showroom where prospective clients could see the cabinetry, countertops, window treatments, and other accessories available for custom kitchens and baths.

With the opening of Final Design at 1601 Lakeshore Drive in St. Joseph this summer that dream was realized. She recently celebrated the new location with a grand opening and ribbon cutting.

Bennett started her design firm while still living in the metro Detroit area. As a result of the recession in 2008, she decided to close the business. Several years later, Bennett and her family moved to St. Joseph and she opened her design firm again, operating it from home.

Bennett has a B.S. in Interior Architecture from Lawrence Technological University and has been a full-time kitchen and bath designer since.

Bennett is a graduate of the POWER program at the Women’s Business Center at Cornerstone Alliance. It’s an 11-week interactive program for female entrepreneurs who want to launch a business or as in Bennett’s case, who owned a business and was ready to take it to the next level.The program teaches the tools and resources to move from a home-based business to a store-front with a showroom

“The Women’s Business Center has encouraged, supported and inspired my vision to invest in myself again,” says Bennett. “Their optimism about my abilities has given me the perseverance to find a way to grow my kitchen and bath design business.” 

Final Design is open from 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.

 For more information on Final Design, call (269) 985-3610, or visit their website.
