Charles City’s Main Street set to grow in 2021

Charles City’s Main Street is set to grow exponentially in 2021.

In fact, by mid-year there could be possibly three new fixtures on the strip:

  1. The first domino already dropped in late-December as ‘McCoy Smoothies and More’ opened up inside of SNAP Fitness near Central Park 
  2. The second 2021 addition could be the finishing touches on the ‘Union House’ or the former ‘McQuillen Place’. According to a report from First Security Bank President Kurt Herbrechtsmeyer back in November, the hope is to finish the project and have it occupied by spring or early-summer of this year
  3. And the final addition to Main Street in 2021 is a clothing store. ‘Mara’ in Charles City is expanding and opening a second store at 101 North Main Street in February. This second store is going to be called ‘Cardigan’ and carry women’s clothing of all sizes

Mara Owner Tiffany Rottinghaus says she often thinks about how to spice up Main Street and she is excited that her new business could potentially do that. 


Rottinghaus says she thinks it is great how the community has rallied behind the local businesses in the area this last year. 

After this expansion, she is interested to see where her ventures take her.


2020 also infused Main Street with a little life after both ‘Main Street Drug’ and ‘Hair Forum’ opened on it.
