Jan Worthan's American Family Insurance office will be moving to a new location the weekend of November 15 to 808 Michigan Suite 2. The office will be closed that following Monday to get everything set up. Worthan says the new location will offer an after hours payment drop box.
The office's new location is located at the corner of Michigan and W. Milwaukee. "There's more visability there," said Worthan. Currently the office is located at 219 West Sixth St., however, with large trees Worthan says makes the office more hidden. The move will also allow dentists Drs. Greg and Chris Hansen and Dr. Sarah Jewett who share the space some room to grow. Worthan said when Chris Hansen moved back to practice dentistry at his his father's clinic he expressed some desires to possibly expand the facility.
Worthan who owns the building says she was a supporter of the young professional's wish for growth and his desire to stay in the small town community. Worthan says with the new building which she and her husband purchased this summer they won't have to compete with dental clients for parking. The building which is just west of Walgreens originally housed Mailbox Etc and Professional Hearing Solutions.
Worthan said Friesen Home Improvement gutted everything in the east part of the building adding new insulation, new drywall, new carpeting, new walls and doors. Wachovia Securities will remain in the west end of the building. Professional Hearing Solutions moved out of the building at the beginning of October 2008 to a larger facility.
Worthan has been a practicing agent in Storm Lake for around 16 years. Worthan's office is open Mon. through Fri. 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or evenings and weekends by appointment. For more information visit www.janworthan.com or call 732-3578.
