CORNING — Adam and Heather Downing of Corning are the new owners of Fudge Town Interiors in Corning.
Fudge Town Interiors was established in 1970 by Boyd and Cleo Fudge and operated on their family farm before relocating to the main street in Corning. After 15 years, their daughter Terri and son-in-law Jim Walter took over the family business. The Downings recently purchased the business and took over as owners the first week of January.
According to the Walters, Adam and Heather are committed to providing the same exceptional value and service the Walters have strived for over the years.
Heather, originally from Stanton, attended Southwestern Community College before transferring to Simpson College to obtain her bachelors in education. She taught at the elementary level at Creston Elementary School before pursuing her love of retail. Heather, now a licensed interior decorator, has been working at Fudge Town Interiors since mid-2012.
Adam, from Orient, also attended Southwestern Community College and Simpson College in pursuit of his bachelors in business. He is currently employed as a shift manager at Ferrara Candy Company, formerly known as Farley’s and Sathers, where he has worked for seven years. Adam is beginning the transition from Ferrara’s to Fudge Town Interiors to focus on running the new business.
“This is something we have always wanted to do,” said Heather Downing. “When the opportunity presented itself, we jumped on it.”
