Two New Braunfels businesses will be closing at the end of March, including one that has been operating in the city for 137 years.

ADM Milling Co.

Operating in New Braunfels since 1886, the ADM Milling Co., located at 398 E. San Antonio St., New Braunfels, and formerly known as the Dittlinger Mill, will close at the end of March, parent company Archer Daniels Midland confirmed to Community Impact.

In an emailed statement, Dane Lisser, with media relations for the company, said ADM regularly reviews their global footprint “to determine whether assets are best positioned to meet customer needs and advance our growth strategy.”

Lisser said the company is working with those currently employed at the New Braunfels plant to find work elsewhere in the company or offer a financial package and support to find employment elsewhere. ADM will decommission and dispose of the facility.

The Book Haus

The Book Haus, an independent retailer located at 992 Hwy. 46 W., Ste. 102, New Braunfels, announced they will close March 31.

“We’re going to start liquidating next week so that we can get rid of some of these books,” said Sabrina Caldwell, owner of The Book Haus.

The liquidation sale began Feb. 20 until they close. Caldwell told Community Impact that it no longer made financial sense to continue to operate the bookstore.

In a Facebook post, the retailer said they will miss their regulars and meeting new customers. Community pop-up events will still be on the horizon after the brick-and-mortar location closes. The Book Haus carries new and used books and offers store credit in exchange for books that customers bring in.
