About Bluemkes, Inc.

It was May of 1903 when August H. Bluemke bought a small wood-frame building to open a hardware store in Rosendale, Wisconsin. It was located on the corner of two state highways. Little did he know that what he started would be continued by his descendants for over one hundred years.

August's son, Herbert, took over the hardware, appliance, and implement business after his father's death in 1926. He expanded the business and struggled through the depression years, continuing to offer the same reliable service. In January of 1941, a fire completely demolished the entire building. Herbert had a desire to continue the business, and by June of the same year a new brick building with hardwood floors was built at the same location. This same building, with additions, is still serving customers today.

Herbert & Hazel Bluemke's daughter, Emajean, and her husband, Jim Westphal, became involved in the business in 1961. Jim took over the management in 1977. In 1986 their daughter, Elizabeth, and her husband, Larry Crook joined them. The Westphals' other daughter, Rebecca, also works part-time in the business. Bethany and Jordan Crook are proud to be the fifth generation to carry on the family's legacy of serving customers.

Over the years, Bluemkes has changed the products serviced and sold, continuing with lawn and garden equipment and appliances while adding mattresses. In 1988 we expanded, and a second location was added in Ripon, where we also sell furniture in addition to mattresses and appliances. Servicing what we sell has been the foundation of our business since our beginning in 1903.
