Grant City, MO- Northwest Missouri and Southern Iowa now have a premiere headstone creation company thanks to business owner Treasa Staton.  Headstone Country Variety Store, LLC is a small business based in Grant City that specializes in creating affordable headstones and cemetery markers. To celebrate its opening, owner Treasa Staton is inviting the public to a ribbon cutting and business celebration on June 15, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. The celebration will be held at Headstone Country Variety Store, located at 301 S Lyon St, Grant City, Mo.

When asked about the inspiration behind the business, Treasa explained that it all started with her passion to help others.

“To me, life is about helping people and we found out that there is a need for local headstone services. We set out to help those people in need by providing headstones at competitive prices that are affordable,”

As with many businesses just starting out, Treasa has been faced with the challenge of spreading news of her business. She hopes that by speaking to the public about Headstone Country Variety Store and inviting the public to the business celebration on July 2 will help her introduce her Headstone Country.

The business has also enlisted the guidance of Northwest Missouri Enterprise Facilitation, who has provided her knowledge and resources to put her business on the right path. As Headstone Country grows, Treasa’s hopes are to see the business gain recognition as a premier headstone provider in Northwest Missouri and Southern Iowa.
