Downtown Wadena has three new retail operations all housed in the former J.C. Penney building:

An Open Book is the name of the expanded and transformed former Borealis Bookstore. This bigger and more broad-based book and related information center for the Wadena region now fills the first floor and mezzanine of the former Village Emporium.


Gracie's Clothing Boutique fills the ground level with name brand fashions and like-new affordable clothing for the entire family.
