An Oelwein business is now slated to close following the death of one of its owners.

Dean's Destination Powersports will be closing its doors on Friday, Nov. 9, 2018. Owner Dean Schlitter died earlier this year.

The business, located at the intersection of South Frederick Ave, and Iowa Highway 281, sells motorcycles, off-road vehicles, parts, and accessories.

In appreciation for its customers, Dean's is selling merchandise, in-stock parts, and accessories at 10% over cost. The sale will be in effect until closing day, Friday, Nov. 9. The business itself, will also be up for sale.

Schlitter passed away on Aug. 6. He was very involved in his community, being a member of local service organizations for many years, as well as his church. He is also known to many in northeast Iowa, as a former radio announcer for KOEL-AM in Oelwein.

Destination Powersports opened 14 years ago, a business that Dean, and his wife Sue, cared for very much. Sue and their daughter Laura, expressed appreciation for all of their customers and friends.
