Thrift store trying to stay alive
Gertrude "Gerdie" Krogstad remembers a time when she and the thrift store she helps run were so successful they were able to give money away to several charities throughout the Detroit Lakes community.
"I think we were able to help like seven or eight organizations every year," Krogstad said.
Things have changed at the Adventist Community Services, though, as business there is barely enough to keep them open.
