Another local couple take to Main Street Newcomerstown as they just opened Now & Then Guns-N-Stuff at 211 W. Main St. on May 6. The location is next to the Feed Barn. Kevin and Robyn Hanenkrat are the owners, and they’re extremely excited about moving their home-based business to a separate location.
“I’ve had the store online and at home since 2017, but my business has grown and so has my family. Robyn Hickman Hanenkrat and I recently got married, and I’ve gone from having just my daughter and myself to a household of five. We are also a dog-loving family and we have five in all,” Kevin noted.
Once the couple made the decision to move Now & Then Guns-N-Stuff to the village, they consulted with Robyn’s uncle, Ron Hickman of Old Towne Realty, and he helped find the perfect storefront for them. . The company is independent and very family-run. Kevin and Robyn have received tons of support from their daughters – Hailee, Mady and Libby – as well as their two families.
“We offer both new and used guns, as well as ammunition, powder/primers, holsters, gun cleaning supplies, reloading supplies, scopes and many other hunting and firearms accessories,” Kevin pointed out. “We will also be carrying LaCrosse boots in the near future. I am happy to special order any item you are looking for when available. You can order online for your convenience with shipping options or pick up at Now & Then Guns -N-Stuff.
“Another brand we are proud to offer is our very own NTGS Customs, which includes custom or ready-to-sell apparel, decals, tumblers, and more. Robyn can customize any tumbler or apparel (among other items) with your own design. We also offer a unique Nana’s Corner with elements created by my mother such as quilts, bears, unique handbags for children and other gifts. There is something for everyone at Now & Then Guns-N-Stuff.
“While Kevin grew up in Atwood Lake and moved to the area 16 years ago for work, I have resided in or near the village all my life and am an NHS graduate. When we decided it was time to expand our home, we knew Newcomerstown was the place for us,” Robyn said. “I love the community, and Kevin has come to love it too. This is the small town atmosphere that I want our children to experience. We enjoy participating in our three daughters’ activities, including volleyball and softball, as well as softball coaching. Our careers and our children keep us busy, and we wouldn’t want it any other way, but it’s also nice to spend time bowling, hunting, fishing, hiking and other outdoor activities when weather permits.
Kevin and Robyn end by saying that they look forward to being part of Main Street and feel blessed to have a business in Newcomerstown that the village hasn’t had in years. The Hanenkrats would also like to thank all of their valued customers, and if you haven’t stopped by, do so and see all that Now & Then Guns-N-Stuff has to offer.
