Cubby’s in Tekamah, NE is the November Store of the Month!
The Tekamah store has operated under the management of Tarie Nohrenberg since 2008. The store is family-oriented, and the staff knows their customers by name.
“There are no strangers in our store. We know what our regular customers want before they even get here,” said Tarie. “We have a ham breakfast pizza waiting for one customer who comes in every day, 7 days a week at 8:30 am. It’s the personal connections that keep our customers coming back every day.”
In addition to knowing their customers, the staff in Tekamah is committed to keeping their shelves stocked with the items their customers need. Maintaining strong relationships with their vendors is a top priority for the staff, and it has paid off during recent supply shortages.
The Tekamah Cubby’s is a popular location for hunters, who stop in and stock up on sandwiches, snacks, and beverages for the day. They are always met with a friendly face – despite the early morning hours! Greg Wagner from the Nebraska Game and Parks recently did his radio show live from the Tekamah location, highlighting their welcoming, accommodating atmosphere and convenience for deer hunters. The show brought a lot of excitement – and new customers! – to the store.
The store is preparing for the busy holiday season and will be involved with community decorating organized by the Chamber of Commerce in town. The staff is busy preparing for a Secret Santa gift exchange and making plans to decorate the store.
During the month of December, young visitors to the store can go on a scavenger hunt throughout the store, looking for hidden holiday gnomes, dressed to look like the store staff. Tarie says this is the first year for the fun activity, but families in the community are already excited.
“Cubby’s is a wonderful place to work, I love the staff and family-oriented nature of the company,” said Tarie. “Our customers will always find a friendly, clean store with a happy atmosphere.”
Congratulations to Tekamah, our November Store of the Month!
