NORFOLK, Neb. -- The city of Norfolk celebrated the opening of a brand new rental store Monday.

Midwest Construction Rentals opened their second location today at 1500 South 1st Street.

The company is based out of Sioux City, Iowa.

The rental company rents large construction vehicles such as telehandlers, tillers, and augers.

They also sell tools, spray paint, and other accessories needed for construction projects.

Store manager Brian Riedemann said the time was right to expand to Norfolk after receiving multiple rental requests from the area.

"Norfolk seemed like a really nice growing town. We had a lot of calls coming from the area at our Sioux City location. So we thought why not help out the Norfolk area and stick a store here and go from there," Riedemann said.

Attendees at the opening on Monday had the opportunity to enjoy lunch and enter into a raffle to win a lawnmower through US92's "Mowed Trip."
