Our thrift stores are a collaborative effort between ProWorks and the communities of Dassel and Litchfield; our mutual goal is to provide and improve training & habilitation services to persons with developmental disabilities, brain injury and mental illness. Whether you are a contributor or a customer, you become a partner with us in this important project. In some small way you are improving the lives of persons who live with a disability.
It is our hope that you enjoy your shopping experience at Again & Again in Dassel, and Again & Again Too in Litchfield, and we sincerely thank you for your support of this project.
– Dale Miller, ProWorks Director
ProWorks opened its first thrift store, Again & Again, on April 7, 2012. This store was a collaborative effort between ProWorks and the City of Dassel, MN. ProWorks Board of Directors had but two goals for this store: to provide work training opportunities to the people we serve, and to gain additional resources to support ProWorks services. Our Again & Again Thrift Store is licensed by the MN Department of Human Services, under MN Statute Chapter 245D, as an intensive support service provider. The Again & Again Thrift Store is a member of the Dassel Chamber of Commerce.

Our Again & Again Thrift Store proved successful, and ProWorks Board of Directors agreed that opening a second thrift store may be a good idea. ProWorks opened its second thrift store, Again & Again Too, on March 16, 2015, and again, it was their wish to provide more work training opportunities to the people served, and to gain additional resources to support ProWorks services. Our Again & Again Too Thrift Store is licensed by the MN Department of Human Services, under MN Statute Chapter 245D, as an intensive support service provider. The Again & Again Too Thrift Store is a member of the Litchfield Chamber of Commerce and the Litchfield Downtown Council.

When you shop, donate, or volunteer at our thrift stores you have a positive impact on the lives of people who live with disabilities because you are supporting services here in Meeker County, that serve them. Both thrift stores are closed New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
When you visit our stores, you will find courteous and knowledgeable people to assist you. Our stores are clean and well organized; our prices and selection are great. We usually have a good selection of clothing, jewelry, plates, cups and other dinnerware, home decor, outdoor décor, antiques & collectibles, small appliances, books, VHS tapes and DVDs and many other items. Every day is different! You never know what treasures you may find.
How may I donate?
Both stores gladly accept donations during their regular business hours. You may leave your items at the back entrance to each store. Please ring the doorbell, and a store employee will be available to assist you. Please do not leave items on the ground outside the store. ProWorks has a 501(c)(3) classification under Internal Revenue Service codes, and therefore, your contribution may be tax-deductible. A tax-deductible receipt will be available.
