The old liquidator buildings, which have stood empty for five years, are showing signs of life again. Renae Anderson and granddaughter Brianna Olson opened up a consignment/thrift shop, Rplace, in the two buildings last week. “We can fill every room of your house!” Anderson noted.
“We purchased the buildings on May 1 from Harlow (Galbreath) and have been fixing it up since then,” Anderson explained. Along with the double-wide store, she also bought the garage, warehouse and grassy lot.
Although she is young, Olson is looking forward to running the store. The family has been busy the past few weeks getting the place set up. Olson is using some of her decorating talent she inherited from her mother, Neverlyn Anderson.
