local love

local loveAs a business in a small town we wanted to give a shout out ahead of the Christmas Shopping season to some of our favorite unique local shops. There is no order or rhyme or reason to this list its just shops that pop up in my head.  We believe in shopping local and keeping our little economy thriving.  I never had a problem with Walmart anymore than I could have a problem with shopping online for insurance.  As a competitor to the mega corporations you just need to do what you do better.  We have some great places in town that fit that bill perfectly:

Beans and Books

Beans and Books is a great little coffee shop. As a small town we have no starbucks but in virtually any town there are coffeeshops who could give starbucks a run for their money and Beans and Books is that shop for Shawano. Ive never had a bad cup of coffee at this place and the books available for you to borrow and read are a great way to distinguish them from other coffeeshops. They are friendly and you will feel comfortable regardless of how much time you sit and read.

Body Essentials

Body Essencials is another business that stands alone even if they did have competition. They sell womens clothing candles and actually sell a lot of wedding dresses which i’m not sure you can find anywhere else locally. I will typically go there if i need gifts for the ladies =)

Village Garden

I’m not sure if you have tried to find a good florist before but its difficult especially in a large city. I had a go-to-florist when I loved in Rockford, IL and they were pricey. They also were not particularly friendly. In a city you become desensitized to this behavior. Cindy at the Village Garden is awesome and is amazing at her craft. Best of all you will walk out with a smile.

This was not meant to be an exhaustive list just a simple list.

The Protectionist

Can he alone save the day

Life and Limb

A windstorm struck the area and branches are everywhere! Cleanup is always a problem but the damage caused can be more troublesome. Can the Protectionist use his powers to move massive branches like some kind of large beaver all hopped up on Mt Dew?

All you need to do is call us. Windstorm is one of the basic perils on your homeowners policy. The Wallrich Agency can make sure your claim is processed quickly and the damage is repaired.

Hail Mary

Mary is in trouble. Hail is coming down hard and her car is taking the brunt of the damaging forces. Can the Protectionist save her vehicle from malicious hail?

Fortunately Mary carries auto insurance with Comprehensive coverage. Among other things this coverage will allow her to repair the damage from Wind and hail. Comprehensive coverage also protects her in the case of theft or vandalism. If a building collapses on her vehicle or she strikes an animal while driving she will be protected.


Fender Benders will ruin your day. Take these two drivers for instance. Tempers are running high, can the Protectionist save the day with his custom app?

Fortunately they wont have to rely on an app or a superhero if they carry insurance with the Wallrich Agency. Questions can be answered and a claim can be filed with a phone call.
