Quality and value always have been important to shoppers but people shopping today want more.
Maquoketa's downtown maintains a variety of retail and commercial establishments ranging from necessities like groceries and pharmacy services to jewelry, furniture, clothing, cards and specialty stores. The West Platt corridor offers additional services such as groceries, dry cleaning, pharmacy, flower shops, hardware, auto-oriented services and Wal-Mart. Customer-oriented merchants, always eager to please, offer friendly, "old-fashioned" service.
Banowetz Antiques, Iowa's largest antique dealer, is located at the junction of Hwy 61 and Hwy 64. Several small antique shops in the city truly make this area an antiquary's heaven.
Visitors to Maquoketa, and Maquoketans' alike, enjoy four-season shopping among friendly, smiling people in stores featuring the latest in up-to-date wares and accessories. Maquoketa hosts a few entrepreneur jewelry artists and dealers that offer one-of-a-kind items that compliment any clothing ware.
Maquoketa Shoppers have the pleasure of choosing from a genuine variety in stores, many that have a historical storefront, a reminder of what one-of-a-kind shopping really means. Most importantly, they are treated with helping hands and friendly smiles, the Maquoketa way.
