Some people in Caledonia will say Twice Is Nice is located “just below the bowling alley. Others, including new manager Kristi Molling will tell folks “we’re located across the street from the hardware store.”
Located at 521 Old Hwy. Dr., Molling wants to let people know that you can find all kinds of deals on a multitude of gently used items.
Under new management
Molling took over as the retail store manager on Feb. 13.
The Caledonia native went to school for fashion merchandise and said “I’ve worked in retail a long time.”
She also has a close connection to the clients that Twice Is Nice serves, having worked several years at A.B.L.E.
“I’ve always enjoyed working retail,” she said. “I love the merchandise side of things, and its very rewarding working with the clients.”
She has set upon the task of doing some organizing in the store, color coding things in the back room.
“Just to help make it go a little more smoothly,” she said.
She also said she is working on several things to help bring awareness of the presence of the company to the greater Caledonia community.
“I just want them to be aware we’re here,” she smiled.
The money generated from sales in the store helps employ roughly 40 workers who complete odd job tasks for several local and area businesses.
“The donations and the money raised all stays local,” Molling said.
The store features household items, clothing, toys, shoes, knick-nacks, but they don’t accept furniture.
“It’s more of a space issue,” she said of the decision.
Molling would prefer that donations be made during business hours.
Twice Is Nice is open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
