Meet Nate – Our Manager at Common Goods!

I would like to take this opportunity to say hello and introduce myself as the Retail Manager at Common Goods. I started in this new role last December and am loving every minute of it!

Before taking this new position, I knew there had to be a more meaningful use of my talents and years of retail experience than than just increasing the bottom line for a business. During my years in corporate retail, I was continually searching and praying for a career where I could feel like my efforts and decisions really mattered.

Last December, my years of searching and praying led me to Common Goods as the new Retail Manager.  For those of you who may not be aware, the proceeds from Common Goods help fund the programs at Bridges of Hope which serves households in the Lakes Area facing challenges of many kinds.

All of the items available for purchase at Common Goods are donated and the proceeds stay in the Brainerd Lakes area. It is truly a rewarding experience to know that the choices and decisions I make for Common Goods have a direct impact on Bridges of Hope’s ability to improve a household’s life and well being in our community. 

If you are one of our loyal

shoppers or donors already, thank you for your support! If you are new to the world of thrift shopping or just haven’t been by the store recently, please stop by, say hello, and allow me to introduce myself. I’d love to help you find what you are looking for!

We are located on Highway 371 N, next to Dondelinger Chevrolet and Lake Region Storage.  I hope to see see you soon!
