Someplace Safe Thrift Store moves to new location

The countdown is on to the May 29 opening of the Someplace Safe Thrift Store in its new location at 801 County Road 44 NW (next to Casey's gas station) in Alexandria.

Someplace Safe staff and volunteers are hard at work moving and setting up the new thrift store.

Donations from the community are being accepted Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the new location, and are coming in steadily.

"We are extremely excited to see the store take shape in its new location, and cannot wait to welcome the public," said store manager Karen Schuneman. "The store is going to be fabulous, and creates such an incredible opportunity to help support victims and survivors of crime in our area, for both Someplace Safe and the larger community."

The public can look forward to new merchandise and daily sales, as well as new opportunities to get involved at the store and with Someplace Safe.

Beginning May 29, store hours in the new location will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. Donations will be accepted daily from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., or by appointment during business hours.
