Ann and Dick Squire were both born and raised in the town of Westport, MA. Soon after their marriage, they knew Westport would be their home forever and began to raise their three sons in town as well. Around this time, they were in search of a location to open a small business of their own. Dick noticed that the building at 842 Main Road that was once a barn appeared vacant because there were no tracks in snowy driveway that winter of 1977.

It was that year the building was purchased, and Country Woolens was opened as a sweater and yarn shop. Ann never knew as a child that the school she attended and playground she played marbles at would be right next door to her future business as a grown woman.




Unique touches, such as wooden ceiling beams from a barn in Fall River, and the creation of our ‘sheep’ logo helped Country Woolens establish its small-town repertoire and customer base. 

Ten years later in 1987, the business was growing and an addition was needed. Can you imagine that a single maple tree was the reason that our store expanded backward and not sideways? The beautiful towering tree still sits outside our north door today, greeting each customer from our parking lot. Customers are always surprised at the large size of our store when they come in for the first time, as the rear-facing addition is partially shielded from view.


Forty-seven years later, the yarn is gone but the business is still in the family, as Ann's daughter-in-law Liz has been managing the store since 2013.  We continue offering men, women, and children a large selection of practical, purposeful attire and gifts.

We hope you, your friends, and family enjoy the small town feel of our store. Our number one objective is to keep our loyal customers happy and to provide an experience for newcomers that keeps them coming back year after year. We do this by carrying high-quality products that last, a friendly, easy-going shopping experience, and offering superior customer service. If we don’t have exactly what you’re looking for, our knowledgeable staff will do their best to find it or a suitable alternative for you.
