Perham thrift store grand opening is Friday

The History Museum of East Otter Tail County will have a grand opening Friday, Dec. 17 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. of a new thrift store called The White Elephant, located at 805 West Main, Perham.

The idea of a thrift store was developed by the Friends of the History Museum of East Otter Tail County as a way to raise money for the Museums of Perham.  At the same time, there was space at the ITOW Veterans Museum building that wasn't being used, the old bar area of this former VFW building.

While visitors can't get a drink there anymore, they might find some deals on home décor, holiday decorations, small furniture and appliances, collectibles, linens, vintage clothing, toys, and tools. 

The thrift store would appreciate donations of clean, workable items in good condition. Donations may be dropped off anytime at the Main Street entrance of the ITOW Veterans Museum. Donations are tax deductible. Open hours for the thrift store will be Thursday and Friday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.  For more information, call 218-346-7678.
