The Hubbard County DAC owns and operates three retail stores in Park Rapids. These stores offer multiple benefits to the community and to DAC clients.

Each store is a thrift-based store model, all accepting donations from the community. These donations are then sent to Bearly Used, The Tin Ceiling, or to the DAC Salvage Depot. These stores offer an opportunity for our clients to work in the community while helping to raise funds for the DAC programs.

Along with used and re-purposed merchandise, these stores also offer an opportunity for the sale of popular items created by DAC clients through our center-based employment program.
