When the opportunity came to get into the furniture business, Don Kendal, a longtime businessman in the area, decided to jump right in and give it a try. Kendal is probably best known for his auto dealership and his restaurant, both located in Edinburg for many years. Neither business is there now, but Kendal is always looking for ways to increase tax revenues in town as well as give the town another option when it comes to shopping.
Country Peddler’s is Don’s newest venture and is at 101 E Washington in Edinburg. The shop presently carries small tools, gift items and a huge selection of knives including many collectibles. The big news for Country Peddler’s is the addition of new furniture.
Don is currently stocking furniture from Washington and Prime Design and actually went to the factories and toured their operations. He has vowed to only carry American made furniture. Country Peddler’s, is at 101 E Washington in Edinburg. The shop is open Monday through Saturday, 11 am to 5 pm. You can call ahead at 217-827-3431.
