Built in 1911, the Shores building was originally home to the Shores-Mueller Co. The Shores-Mueller Co. sold products direct to consumers via catalogs. The company offered a range of products that were produced, packaged, and sold right from the Shores building in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
According to the Shores Catalogue and Cook Book, the company offered every product that consumers needed for both the home and farm including baking powder, spices, toilet articles, poultry remedies, and hog powders.
Today at Shores Event Center, you won’t find hog or baking powder but we are confident that this beautiful, historic venue will add some spice to your upcoming event and you will find bathrooms fully stocked with plenty of toilet articles.
