In 1856, three Polish-born brothers opened a general store in Iowa. Even then they offered home delivery, by strapping merchandise to their backs and delivering it to farmers who were unable to make the trip into town. In 1900, the store moved to its final location on 7th and Walnut in downtown Des Moines. It remained there for over 100 years. Today Younkers customers can find a lot more than the select offerings of a small town general store. Younkers offers brand-name clothing, accessories, furniture, bedding, jewelry and more. And all offered with the same high-level of customer service that helped make Younkers famous over 100 years ago.
