CONCORD - The Department of Corrections Retail Showroom will open once again Monday in Concord featuring products made by state prisoners.
"They make a wide array of objects of woodworking, furniture, crafts, painting. Most anything that they can think up in their mind or create with their hands," said Jeff Lyons, Department of Corrections spokesman.
Years ago, tough times shuttered the store.
"We've had a lot of budget issues over the years, so we were never able to keep it open on a regular basis like we'd like," said Lyons. "So, we're able to do that now."
Inmates have been getting ready for the grand opening.
"For approximately six weeks now we've been inventorying the items, and tagging the items, setting up the store, " said inmate Lance Leclair.
The store will be open everyday except Wednesday and Sunday.
