The UPS Store owner Don Barrett cuts the ribbon on the new location in Whitestown.

Whitestown, Ind. – A local Boone County resident has opened a UPS Store in Whitestown.

Don Barrett utilized the services of The UPS Store for years when he worked in business technology. He was intrigued by the concept so he contacted UPS about opening a location in Whitestown.

“The rest is history, as they say,” said Barrett.

Barrett cut the ribbon on the new store, located at 7163 Whitestown Parkway, on Tuesday and will host a grand opening celebration on Saturday, July 21 with Fundae’s that will include kids’ games, the country band Bigg Country and more.

“Don is one of the most diligent small business owners I have ever met; he is focused on learning everything he can to be a successful business owner in Whitestown,” said Boone County Economic Development Corporation (Boone EDC) Deputy Director Ben Worrell. “The Boone EDC works with small business owners like Don to make the connections they need to grow and thrive in Boone County.”

The UPS Store offers packing and shipping services in addition to printing projects large and small. They also have post office boxes available and provide notary services.

Barrett places a high priority on being a good community partner which is why he plans to offer notary services free to Boone County law enforcements officers.

“We focus on offering our customers the services they need,” said Barrett. “Come stop by and see what we can do for you.”

The store is open weekdays from 8 a.m.-6:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
