Julia Schaefer and Madison Montgomery initially faced an uphill battle when they first started searching for a location for the business earlier this year. The women were rejected by at three different building owners while searching for a place to open their business.

This week they announced plans to open the Toolbox at 128 ½ Washington Street in downtown Iowa City, directly above Jimmy John’s.

“We’re moving in and we’ll be open in the middle of the month,” said Schaefer. Schaefer said the shop will have a focus on offering “adult-friendly” products to customers.
