Tour of PRISM's new building

Golden Valley-based nonprofit PRISM has opened its doors at a new location. Staff say the new space allows them to better serve clients as well as offers a chance to generate more revenue through a larger thrift store.

The new location at 1220 Zane Avenue North is just east of the roundabout on Douglas Drive and Golden Valley Road. A donor purchased the building and gave it to Jewish Family and Children’s Services, who leased space to PRISM.

The new location has a storefront for a larger, more shopper-friendly thrift store. The nonprofit hopes the thrift store will generate more revenue.

The food shelf also offers a better-feel for clients. Instead of the large warehouse that served as storage and shopping space, the shopping area looks like a grocery store. There are more coolers and more fresh fruits and vegetables.

PRISM embarked on a two-year campaign to raise $350,000 for this move.
