- Oneida County hopes to save its two-year-old resale shop. But budget cuts and an expiring trash collection deal could force it to close.
The Solid Waste Committee met Monday morning to talk about ways to keep the Second Story Store afloat, It's located on Highway K, northwest of Rhinelander.
People can donate things like lightly used tables, chairs and furniture they would otherwise be throwing away. Then, shoppers can buy it at a discounted rate.
But the county doesn't have the money to keep paying workers to man the store.
Two volunteers have now come forward to offer their time to keep the Second Story Store open every day. The county needs to make sure it can legally have those two volunteers work for free.
If it can, Solid Waste Director Freeman Bennett tells us they would hope to have the store running full-time by July 4th.
If not, it will only be open twice this year.
