All proceeds from sales at Affordables and Affordables on 1st stay in north Iowa and help support employment training programs for North Iowans with barriers to employment. The store depends on the generosity and support of the community as all the merchandise is donated.

Skill training covers all aspects of the retail industry including: operating the cash register, stocking merchandise, helping customers, loading and unloading donations, and preparing donated items for resale. Clothing and all other merchandise are carefully sorted through for quality before being tagged and taken to the sales floor.
