Amy & Eric Abrams - Owners

Amy and Eric became the owners of Duck Worth wearing in 2006. Three years later they opened The Loft in 2009. Amy and Eric grew up just miles apart with Amy's stomping grounds of Radcliffe, Iowa and Eric in Story City, Iowa. As Iowa natives, purchasing the store in Ames seemed the perfect fir for giving back to the area they grew up in.

Eric keeps busy working full time at Iowa DOT as the Geospatial Administrator. In addition Eric helps out at the stores by managing the finances, marketing and website maintenance. This complements Amy's skill set as she is not fond of numbers. Amy's schedule is packed with working between the 3 stores. She is jack of all trades and the glue that holds the stores together. When not working Eric & Amy enjoy time with their two children.  Colby is a 2018 Iowa State graduate and a chemical engineer for Nestle in Cleveland, OH. Mackenzie is a junior working toward her education degree from Iowa State University (just like Amy). Waiting at home are two dogs Milo and Cooper, who can be found from time to time at wandering Duck Worth Wearing.
