Here’s what our member businesses  and organizations have to say about ReUSE Minnesota.

Nancy Ford, Repair Lair
"Years ago I started buying used clothing and household stuff out of economic necessity and continued out of habit. There's always been an overabundance of used items waiting for new homes and I'm doing my part to provide consumers the best opportunity possible to buy used instead of new. 

I worked in the outdoor industry for close to fifteen years selling gear and clothing to campers, skiers, and hikers. The outdoor industry perpetuates the myth that a person needs to spend a bunch of money to be able to fully enjoy the outdoors. My counterattack was to open Repair Lair five years ago. We specialize in repair and consignment of outdoor gear and clothing and have seen double-digit growth every year since we opened. 

My ultimate goal is to provide consumers the knowledge to make educated, thoughtful purchases of secondhand goods. Shopping secondhand and repairing what you have is good for the environment and good for your wallet."

Amanda LaGrange, Tech Dump and Tech Discounts
"Tech Dump and Tech Discounts have benefitted from our membership in ReUSE Minnesota. The directory listings and the events have helped us connect to new donors and new customers."

Kristen McCoy, reTHINK Tailoring
"What brought me to ReUSE Minnesota is that it’s my mission too. It was kind of a no-brainer that I should be a part of that and get involved with what they’re doing. It’s the exact community that I want to be around." Check out this video interview with Kristen!

Greg Rue, Arc's Value Village
"Reuse is at the core of Arc’s Value Village Thrift Stores. Through ReUSE Minnesota we’re able to connect with like-minded groups throughout the community."

Alicia Wold, Guthrie Costume Rentals
"ReUSE MN is bringing business owners and organizations together. As people from different reuse sectors learn about each other’s work, new opportunities and partnerships are created."
