The Johnson Family
It is with great excitement for the future of The Good Merchant to announce that TGM is under new ownership! In March 2017, Tyler and Molly Johnson purchased The Good Merchant from former owner, Liz Lahodny. "I am fortunate to have found someone who shares my passion and dedication to The Good Merchant being a destination for inspiration and unique offerings," says Liz.
Molly and her husband Tyler are both Bethany College alumni and live in Lindsborg with their two sons, Brik and Soren. Molly most recently worked at Bethany College where she held the position of Director of Annual Giving and Alumni. The couple like to stay involved in the community and in their spare time, enjoy spending weekends working on DIY projects or hunting for one-of-a-kind pieces at auctions, flea markets and junk sales.
Molly is currently the President of the Lindsborg Arts Council where she is in her sixth year of serving on the board of directors. She has also served on the Broadway RFD board of directors as President and the Svensk Hyllningsfest Committee as Program Chair. For the past 10 years, Molly has acted as coordinator of the Old Fashioned 4th of July program in Lindsborg.
Combined with a dream of becoming a small business owner and a knack for finding beautiful potential in all things, Molly looks forward to continuing to offer the unique finds and fun atmosphere of The Good Merchant. She is excited about building upon the success of The Good Merchant so it continues as a destination for inspired living.
