Becca Korby, executive director of Healthy Families of Clallam County and its Child Advocacy Center was at Port Angeles Business Association‘s meeting on November 29, 2016 to talk about the problems of local domestic violence and sexual assault and the prevention of child abuse.
While at the meeting, Sarah Abbott, representing Necessities and Temptation’s owner Edna Petersen, presented Becca Korby with a donation for Healthy Families of $900. The $900 was the tips N&T employees had received over the past two months at the store.

In February 2016, we closed for a week to have new carpets installed. Thanks to Fairchild Floors for the hard-working in getting it done. Thanks to the staff here at the store for the time spent move fixtures and inventory back and forth during the install. On March 18, we celebrated the store being put back together, yes it took a month to put everything in its place. It was also a chance to celebrate the owner, Edna’s, birthday. Thanks to everyone that helped during the transition and everyone that came to celebrate with us.
Necessities and Temptations owner, Edna Petersen, was recently recognized by the Port Angeles Business Association for “Her Distinguished Leadership as 2015 President.”

Find us online. Necessities and Temptations is on several different sites; each for their own reasons.
Our website showcases the store. You can read about our products and services, find the newest feeds from our social media accounts, find out what is happening in the store, and find out how to contact us or visit us.
Our Facebook page is our most frequently updated account. It is the hub of our online presence and offers everything from inspirational quotes to reminders about upcoming events.
Our Google+ page hosts pictures, reviews from Google users, and directions to the store. It is not updated as often as our Facebook page, and is not the best way to directly contact us.
Our YouTube channel is a fun mix of silly videos we made, products we review, and other things we end up having filmed for the store.
Out Twitter feed is different from how our other accounts run. It is very regularly updated. However, it is updated with content from our other accounts. We don’t offer much Twitter exclusive content (though we do reserve some tweets for only twitter). Using Twitter lets our fans stay up to date without having to invest much time.
Our WordPress blog offers content we felt needed more space to write about than we could on other sites, but content that didn’t need to be on our website all of the time. This includes more in depth information about products, reviews of recent in store events, and press releases.
Do you have a social media account somewhere that we aren’t on? Contact us through one of our accounts, and we will see what we can do to create one. You can always visit our website to find the list of sites we are on. Look for the “Connect with Us” tab.

The store celebrates 17 years in downtown Port Angeles this July 2015. Edna opened the store in 1998. Through economic ups and downs, downtown construction projects, and anything in between, the store continues to grow.
Congratulations to Edna for receiving recognition for her community impact as a leader in literacy from United Way of Clallam County in 2015. The people in Port Angeles, and Clallam County as a whole, are very generous with their time and money when helping worthy causes. Thank you to everyone who works to make our home a nicer place to live.
