The Spectrum Network (TSN) is gearing up for the opening of its new thrift store Saturday, May 3.
The Spectrum Network (TSN) is finishing renovations on the former Wonder Hostess Bakery Outlet at 107 West Broadway Street, in Decorah to transform a portion of the building into the Spectrum Thrift Store.
The store will open in mid-late April with a grand opening date of Saturday, May 3. The grand opening event, Spring into Spectrum, will include a 5K Family Fun Run/Walk on Saturday morning.
“We are excited for the opening of this new store and to be able to serve Decorah and the surrounding communities,” said Dr. Deb Schott, executive director of TSN.
“One hundred percent of the proceeds from our thrift stores go directly towards supporting our client programs and helping us further our mission of helping individuals with disabilities gain independence,” Schott continued.
“We have experience running a successful thrift store at our Cresco location and look forward to expanding our operation.”
Donations can be made at The Spectrum Network at 607 Washington St., Decorah. The Thrift Store location will soon have a 24 hour drop off as well. Items being accepted are clothing, decorations, small appliances, home décor, furniture in good condition and more.
Spectrum also collects donations at its Cresco store located at 206 North Elm Street.

Spectrum Thrift Store is phase one of the three-phase business plan for the building, with the other two phases consisting of a food aggregation and cold storage unit and a future commercial- grade community kitchen.
When all phases are complete, projections indicate several new positions will have been created in an integrated employment workplace.
