Iron Empire is celebrating the grand opening of its new location in downtown Erie Saturday.
Iron Empire had a long line of people anxiously awaiting the opening of its new location in the Union Station Plaza.
Jamie and RJ Messenger created Iron Empire not even two years.
They say they never thought the business would get to this point so quickly.
Jamie says it was emotional seeing the community support they had at the grand opening.
Jamie says, “We were just talking this morning that two years ago that company actually didn’t even exist, and then a year ago we were still selling shirts out of our house. So we out great our first location in a year and now we’re here, and so we’re just really happy to be here.”
Jamie says they’re excited to be downtown now because its important for local business to be surrounded by other local businesses, and they hope they can bring something to the downtown community.
