Parke Warehouse celebrating 160 years of business


Decatur  might have the highest unemployment in the state, but one business is celebrating a major milestone.


Parke Warehouse has been in business for 160 years. They have multiple buildings across the Decatur area.


President Bruce Stoddard says, the secret is what's inside. "Inside those buildings are men and women who do a job every single day. And they stand for quality and service for our customers. Really I think we have the best employees in the world and that's probably the key to Parke's longevity."


Parke Warehouse specializes in public and contract warehousing, and other services. Virgil Parke bought the business in 1854.
