What’s Happening in DeWitt – Shops

by Nikki Lindholm

When you drive down DeWitt’s Downtown District you get an overwhelming feeling of being ‘home,’ whether you live there or not! That’s in large part due to the pride in ownership and craft of the shops and restaurants that line the streets. Apart from a few “chain” establishments you will mostly find independently owned, operated, and beloved stores. Agents in our DeWitt office have shared their favorite places to shop for home decor, clothing, antiques, and even art around town.

Home Decor

Evident from the outside and the inside Sashollie is a store where “beauty, comfort and fun collide.” Specializing in everyday home decor that can fit into any design aesthetic to stylish women’s clothing you’ll find what you’re looking for and then some at Sashollie. It’s also a great place to find one-of-a-kind gifts for family and friends! Also don’t miss the mural on the side of the building!

Another spot to check out when on the hunt for home decor is 11th St. Decor. Offering more than decor you’ll also find fun and fashionable women’s apparel.

Add some customized home decor to your life from Sophie LuRoo.  This shop has the cutest gifts to get a friend who is expecting or that person who likes a little extra flair. Sophie LuRoo prides itself on having “that perfect gift.”

Shop and sip at Urbanity Boutique.  Urbanity is not only a clothing store, but they are also a coffee/wine house so you shop while sipping your coffee or while sampling a local Iowa wine. This might be dangerous for your wallet, but you’ll have a blast!


Emma Rae’s Antiques & Uniques is DeWitt’s oldest antique mall and they have a little bit of everything! “It’s a great place to wander! I love all the old antiques and unusual items. If I can’t find it there, they can usually locate it for me!” Family roots run deep through this business. Emma Rae’s is named after the owner’s then-one-year-granddaughter and his sister may even help you check out!


Scott Drug is more than your average drug store, it’s a place where you can pick up your medicine, items for your home, and thoughtful gift for a friend. Scott Drug is easily a one-stop shop for almost everything you need. How convenient!
