Sisseton’s Woodland Cabinetry to be featured on national TV

Courier Staff Writer

Located on the east edge of Sisseton, Woodland Cabinetry has been one of the community’s major employers since its inception in 1994. It was a perfect opportunity for a new company to come into town and fill a void where Power Sentry had just left, leaving a large number of people unemployed and an empty building that needed to be filled. The closing of Power Sentry had left a sour taste in the mouth of the city forefathers, therefore they were reluctant to give Woodland Cabinetry a warm welcome at the beginning. .
