Due to the membership dropping, Adrian IOOF Lodge #8 members made the decision to list the building for sale. After several months, eventually they agreed to sell the building to Earl Solmonson, their first floor business tenant.
The IOOF then leased the second floor of the adjoined building to the north from Solmonson and continued to hold meetings, in a much smaller space.
The large meeting hall was converted into additional retail space. Wallpaper books and carpet tile samples filled the space that the Odd Fellows had met in for 96 years.
