Knicks n Knacks Co. recognized for keeping Andrews beautiful

A relatively new shop in Andrews is being recognized not just for its unique products and services, but also for helping to keep the city beautiful.

On Jan. 3, the City of Andrews lauded Knicks n Knacks Co. for efforts made to beautify the property at 300 E. Broadway. A local family runs the business, which is decorated to the brim with hometown products. What’s on the outside happens to be as visually-enticing as what is on the inside, city officials say.

“A potted plant here, a bench or two there, a little home d├ęcor to brighten up the storefront and with just a little ‘extra’ effort, Knicks n Knacks Co. on East Broadway has been turned into a beautiful space,” the city said.

The recognition is part of the city’s Keep Andrews Beautiful Business Recognition Program. The business was credited with keeping the property and bordering right-of-ways free from litter, dirt and debris.

Jacinto Ataly Banda, owner of Knicks n Knacks Co., posted to social media that the recognition “definitely makes our day.”

“So happy to see that we can make a difference to beautify our town!!,” she added.
