Pak Ratz is a non-profit resale shop. All of our proceeds from the store go to our local Harbor House and the Women’s Center in Marquette & Alger County.
Pak Ratz started around 20 years ago by Deb Soltwisch as a way to make money and help the local community that she called home. She hired Nikki Durand a few years after to take on the store when she left, and since then, the store has blossomed into a great stop for many locals and out of towners. We offer men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing, as well as various household items at a fraction of the cost you would find at other thrift stores. Being non-profit, all of the proceeds go directly back into the local community. Pak Ratz is currently managed by Nikki Durand who is the General Manager (since 2002), Chelsey Cebulski who is the Assistant Manager (since early 2016), and Kim Kruhlik who is the Store Assistant (since early 2017)
