WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU) Randlin Homes, a charity that helps homeless veterans, will close one of its two used furniture and thrift stores in Wausau. Their Bridge Street location will shut down on Friday. Their other location, on 6th Street in Wausau, will stay open. Randlin Homes owns that building. They'd rented the Bridge Street location.
The thrift stores repaired and refurbished donated furniture, helping vets learn valuable job skills. Donated items were then sold to cover costs.
Randlin Home's leadership said it didn't make sense to have two locations within walking distance of each other. They'd also closed a west-side warehouse a year ago to cut costs.
