Open for Business: Washington store celebrates 40 years in business, legacy of family

WASHINGTON, Ill. (WMBD) — There is a strong sense of community in Washington’s square.

“We’ve had great support throughout the years, from little kids to older people,” said Kris Hasten.

She has seen that support firsthand over the decades as the owner of Sentimental Journey.

“We just had our 40th anniversary and the people that came in that have been customers of ours for as long as I can remember. I mean, it just makes it nice to be a part of a community for that long,” she said.

The home décor and gift store has survived the 2008 recession, the 2013 Washington tornado, and 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. For all 40 years of its existence, the business has been on Washington’s square.

“We try to have something for everyone. So, it’s great to be a part of the community that they can come up and find something for a special gift,” Hasten said.
