New faces, new energy at Lanesboro Local Marketplace


Fri, Mar 15th, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Business Announcements

LANESBORO, MN - Nancy Martinson, Board President of Lanesboro Local Marketplace, has announced that Andrea Miehlisch, assistant to former Store Manager Linda Hazel, has taken on the duties of Executive Director of the Marketplace. In her expanded role, Miehlisch will guide all key functions of the non-profit’s management. Miehlisch will be the go-to person for Marketplace customer and vendor queries. Since joining Lanesboro Local during the 2011 season, she has been integral to funding the non-profit via grant writing, fundraisers and membership initiatives. Miehlisch is also the voice of Lanesboro Local’s newsletter and other communications, as well as organizer behind educational programming.

Although Miehlisch began her employment officially in the summer of 2011, she has been a supporter of local foods and the concept of regional self-sufficiency since Lanesboro Local was first organized in 2009. She volunteered to help with the clean-up the gas station at Parkway and Co Rd 8, Lanesboro Local’s first retail home and she joined as a member early on. “I like the people and the effort,” she announced with a big friendly smile. The running dialog with new and current customers is her favorite part of the job. Sharing the unusual stories behind the merchandise is another aspect of retail that Miehlisch enjoys. “Attractive, unique jewelry created using rubber inner tubes is such a different and popular seller. Also, rope baskets by fiber artisan Lori Hungerholt of Root River Baskets in Rushford make beautiful, sturdy shopping carriers that our regular shoppers are thrilled to get their hands on. And there are also the new garden items, like garden hods that John Carlin has been creating, reasonably priced and unique to the Marketplace – selling as fast as he can make them.”

Joining Miehlisch in the Marketplace is Enid Watson. Watson will be the local food specialist and will work with food producers around the area to expand availability and selection of locally produced edibles. Her background includes years as an owner/retailer of children’s stores and decades as a stockbroker. A key focus of her retail experience was developing strategic merchandise assortments. “But food has always been my avocation,” Watson remarked. It’s a category of merchandise that compliments her lifestyle.

Watson’s role at the Marketplace will be to expand the selection of key food items that bring customers in a .....
