Decorah High School has a new school store, The Viking Corner.  It's a student-run business created by the senior marketing communications class in conjunction with local and area businesses.

The students design merchandise, the merchants create the products, and the final merchandise is distributed through a mobile on-site school store as well as through their newly-created website.  Students designed the store logo, name, packaging, and website. Students also developed a social media campaign­–-all while learning accounting, pricing, inventory control, and visual merchandising through window displays.

The Marketing Communications class was also responsible for designing, promoting, and selling Homecoming t-shirts and is currently partnering with the Industrial Technology Department to promote student-made woods projects.
