Board members of the Iola Senior Citizen Thrift Store have been speaking with state and local officials to clear the way for a new addition. The building is in a flood plain and will need to have a tree removed.

Plans to expand the Iola Senior Citizen Thrift Store took another step toward reality.

Dimity Lowell, a board member for the group, gave county commissioners an update on Tuesday.

She’s been busy checking with state and local officials to find out the best way to build an addition at the Thrift Store. The building is too small for the amount of donations and patrons.
