WATERLOO, Iowa - Stuff Etc, the Iowa City-based consignment store chain, will open its first store outside the Cedar Rapids-Iowa City Corridor and fifth location later this year in Waterloo.

The 25-year-old business, with locations in Iowa City, Coralville, and two in Cedar Rapids, will lease a 23,000-square-foot building that formerly housed an Office Depot store at 1210 Flammang Dr., near Crossroads Shopping Center and Target.

The Waterloo Stuff Etc on Oct. 1 will begin accepting gently used items that include, but are not limited to, furniture, adult through infant clothing and shoes, appliances, books, electronics, household items, sportswear and home décor.

The store, which will be roughly the same size at the company’s Iowa City location, is expected to open in early November.

During an interview in April, Mary Sundblad, co-founder of Stuff Etc, said stores owned by franchisees are expected to open later this year in Ankeny and Cedar Falls. Sundblad also expressed a desire to see Stuff Etc franchise stores eventually open in every state.

Lockard Realty of Cedar Falls handled the leasing arrangements.
