SHERIDAN — Jessica Garrelts’ love of food and desire to connect with people through a carefully crafted meal began as a child in her Italian grandmother’s kitchen. This passion continued to grow while working at The Cottonwood Shop, a local kitchen and home store, while home during college breaks.
Jessica and her husband, Jeff, purchased The Cottonwood Shop in 2011, with Jessica managing it full time and turning it into a staple for locals and a must-see for visitors.
When the store outgrew its space, the Garrelts took over the former JCPenney building in 2017 and painstakingly restored and renovated the building, bringing back its former beauty while adding modern touches, including a full commercial kitchen for cooking classes and community events.
