Gruene Antique Co. was opened by Pat Molak and Jane Nalley in July of 1986 and will celebrate 35 years in business this summer.

The business is housed in the HD Gruene Mercantile building, located at 1607 Hunter Road, New Braunfels. The 6,500-square-foot building was constructed by Henry D. Gruene in 1904 as a space for farmers to buy and sell goods.


More than 20 individual vendors operate out of the antique mall, and the store is recognized as a Texas landmark building.

In celebration of the upcoming anniversary, Gruene Antique Co. will host a weeklong anniversary sale April 19-25 with most items priced $35 or more being discounted 15%.

The store is open daily from 10 a.m.-9 p.m. 830-629-7781. www.grueneantiqueco.com
