Feel "The General Store" Experience
Silker’s is a family owned business that has been in Epworth, IA for more than a 110 years. The business has been handed down from father to son for four generations. There is low overhead, very competitive pricing and personalized service. Much of the success of the business comes from word of mouth and years of service to the community. There is a level of trust which has evolved over generations originating from the days of bartending. There is flexibility and availability to deliver to the customer a positive experience with every transaction. There is always a warm and neighborly feeling each and every time you walk up and down the aisles.
Our Indomitable Spirit
As with anything else in life, Silker’s had its share of pain with a fire that destroyed our business on December 6th, 1957. This incident still couldn't stop Silker’s from serving our customers, reopening in 1958 with a new store in our present building on the same spot
Silker’s is where the prices are friendly and the service even friendlier. We will gladly assist you in finding the freshest meats, fruits and vegetables making any meal a real feast. It will take you back to your mom's home cooked meal.
