Pat's Sew N'Stuff-Pat Behling
Hi, I am Pat Behling and I have been in business for 20 years. I opened Pat's Sew N'Stuff because I couldn't buy a spool of thread in Ferron. I started very small and have grown to what we have today.
We offer a full line of fabrics, notions and quilting supplies. I work as a sub-dealer for Dave's Bernina and offer the full line of machines and accessories.

Main Street Market, Sandy Behling
Necessity is often called the mother of invention and so that was the reason that Main Street Market was purchased and established in March of 2007. Sandy and Jim Behling made a life changing decision to buy Jim's brother out of the business and become owners of a supermarket. Jim had to keep his job at Deer Creek to make ends meet and Sandy would quit her job at the Health Department where she loved working with children, take the knowledge she had gained from life experiences and set out to keep the community in food and fuel. Having spent most of her adult life teaching children and very little knowledge of retail business Sandy has had her work cut out for her. Combined with her talents in cooking and shopping, Sandy said I'll do my best. Sandy grew up in Elmo on a large farm. She learned the value of hard work from her parents where she fed animals, milked cows and herded sheep and cows, cooked for the family and hired hands and tended her sisters. Sometimes her dates had to wait while she finished her chores of feeding and milking before she could get ready to go out. Sandy graduated from USU in 2000 with a BS in education an accomplishment she is very proud of. Her husband Jim, of 32 years and their four sons., (Ryan, Randy, Kyle and Kayden), have always stood beside her offering their love and support.
This life altering decision was made because the possibility of not having a store in Ferron was not an option since Sandy knew first hand from living in Elmo that not having a store in your community is very difficult. Since purchasing the store, Sandy handles the daily operation of the store. She had found that having dedicated employees really makes her life much better. She loves the communities she serves and meets many new folks traveling through town. Main Street Market mainly serves Ferron, Emery, Clawson and everyone that travels through town. "We are a full service grocery store and love to help our customers feed their families. We are open Monday-Saturday 5:30 am until 10 pm. Balancing schedules and family are tricky so we chose to close the store on Sunday so we and our employees can spend time at home with family. I am learning so many new things and the store offers exciting experiences. We hope everyone will stop in and say hello and check out our work in progress," said Sandy.
