“Sauce”added to McGregor business scene

A recent business opening has added some sauce to downtown McGregor. In fact, it’s “AwesomeSauce.” AwesomeSauce Botique has opened in the space formerly occupied by Aitkin County Abstract, across from A&M Auto Repair. The store is owned by Beth Juhl and Chad Huhta.

The origins of the store evolve from Beth’s involvement with Vault Jeans for the past several years. She served as a Vault Fit Consultant under Vault’s direct sales model (fyi – the top five North American direct sales companies are: Amway, Avon, Herbalife, Mary Kay, Tupperware [directsellingnews.com, April13, 2015]), in which she can access selections from multiple fashion boutiques.

This spring, the CACU will begin the process of helping students create a branch of the CACU inside the South Ridge School.

The South Ridge branch will not offer all of the products and services that the main location in Cook offers. The site will be small in nature and will primarily offer educationally focused services.

The initial stages of opening an in-school branch will begin with the creation of a focus group which will include students and teachers who will assist the CACU in the creation of a first-class branch. This group will be charged with creating marketing ideas, naming the in-school branch, developing savings programs, and teaching financial concepts in the elementary classrooms.

“The purpose of an in-school branch,” said CACU CEO, Rich Crettol, “is to teach personal financial education and it will offer immediate benefits to the students and long-term benefits to the surrounding community.” Crettol added, “All of the students ...
