Julie and Curt have always enjoyed working side by side in business. From running a dairy farm, to becoming store owners, their hard work ethic and joy of working with people has spurred on this small business to the success it has today.
Julie and Curt Schrimpf purchased a historic building in Downtown Red Wing, MN in 2003 and opened Cut Above Home. Their Mall of America location has been open since 2009.
Curt and Julie reside in Zumbrota, MN. When Julie has downtime (which is rare), she can be found reading or playing Word Crossy, and Curt can be found baking pies or bread. He is an amazing baker!
Sarah Schrimpf (above) became involved in the family business in 2016. Over the years she has worked in our stores, attended product market, done home staging, and boosted our online presence. She enjoys taking photos and managing the store's Facebook site and website. Working with her in-laws keeps things interesting. The phrase, 'Schrimpf Happens' seems to come up often. Laughter definitely keeps us together!
Sarah and Joel live in Chanhassen and have two young daughters. When Sarah is not working, she can be found carpooling them to their various activities!
Tammy Dieman (right) is our manager at the Red Wing store. She started working for us part-time in 2010, after her family moved here from Northern Wisconsin. (So yes, she is a Packer fan, but we still like her.) Tammy loves to help customers find that special gift for their friends and family. Her two favorite seasons to decorate are Fall and Christmas.
Tammy and her husband Chad have been married for 23 years. They have 2 children, Jordyn and Trent, and last October they gained a son-in-law, Brian. In their spare time, they enjoy spending time on their boat on the Mississippi River.
The Cut Above Home name was chosen to let customers know our items are a 'cut above' the rest. Our goal is to choose items that are unique and stand out in your home.
