The Special Hands Shoppe, operated by MSI, inc. offers new and gently used clothing and accessories, books and media, home décor, seasonal items, kitchen items, craft supplies, furniture, collectables and much more at thrift store prices! You never know what you’ll find when you browse our inventory and new items are added daily. The store gets its wide variety of inventory from item donations from the local community. It also features a line of products made by the individuals that work at the Special Hands Shoppe and Choices work unit. While shopping in the store you will be assisted by one of our store associates that are participating in our Retail Training Program.
The Special Hands Shoppe Retail Training program is a new and exciting feature that began on April 1, 2019. The program is designed to help adults with developmental disabilities gain necessary skills and abilities to help them become employed in the community. The program is a blend of classroom lessons, observation, hands on learning, and community outings. After the three months of the training program are finished, the individuals go on to MSI’s Career Discovery program.
