One local company is thriving in the middle of a pandemic.

Heritage Puzzle, a Pfafftown based jigsaw puzzle company, is shipping out puzzles at a rate the owners the Everhart family in Pfafftown have never seen. “We ship out sometimes in a day what we used to ship out in a month,” said Matt Everhart.

Founded in 1998, Heritage Puzzle offers 250 puzzles to consumers.

Customer favorites: Coastal themed puzzles.

BTW: Heritage Puzzle’s first puzzle was an image of the Cape Hatteras lighthouse.
