Janke Book Store celebrates 100 years with a birthday bash

WAUSAU, Wis. (WAOW) — Janke Book Store has been in business serving the Wausau community for 100 years and to celebrate the store’s owners threw a birthday bash.

Dozens of people in the community celebrated at the Rothschild Pavilion, commemorating the major milestone reached by the Janke Books. The celebration consisted of root-beer floats, molasses cookies and a walk down memory lane.

“This is just a fun party saying thank you to Wausau and our staff and our customers because without this community we wouldn’t be here,” said Jane Janke Johnson, Co-Owner of Janke Book Store.

Looking towards the future, the owners of the store say they’re hopeful for 100 more.
