Kiester Commercial 14 Jun 16

KIESTER, Minn. (AP) — The small town of Kiester is embracing the attention from a national TV commercial for hemorrhoid medication set in their town.

The Mankato Free Press reports that the 15-second commercial for Preparation H features a woman impressed by the town as she bicycles past its grocery store, movie theater and fire hall.

The company is holding a thank-you party for the town Tuesday.

Head of the town’s historical society Al Bauman said the closing of Kiester’s last school in 2008 was a blow to the Faribault County town with a population of 501, making any publicity welcome.

Mayor Doug Trytten said the City Council unanimously granted the company to explore filming in the town.
