NFM burying time capsule to celebrate 100th anniversary
Gov. Ricketts, Rep. Don Bacon among those attending Tuesday’s ceremony
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - NFM is celebrating its 100th anniversary with a gift for the future.
Local, state, and national officials were on hand Tuesday at the hub of Nebraska’s largest furniture store to witness the burial of a time capsule.
Gov. Pete Ricketts and Congressman Don Bacon were joined by Westside Community Schools Superintendent Dr. Mike Lucas at NFM at a ceremony Tuesday morning to commemorate the occasion with NFM CEO Tony Boldt and store director Scott Baker.
“Who would have thought in the late 30′s a woman could open a small store with $500 in the basement of a pawn shop and turn that little store into what I think is the best home furnishings business on the planet,” Scott Baker said.
The time capsule is intended to be opened in 15 years. 6 News was asked to contribute and submitted a framed photo of WOWT anchors.
