St. Mark’s Church’s volunteer-run thrift store is reopening its doors tomorrow for the first time since the pandemic began. The Bargain Box is holding a special clearance sale this week and next. All clothes will be sold at 25% off of marked prices.
The consignment shop has been supporting charity for more than 60 years. Normally, it operates for two seasons each year with open hours in the spring and fall. In April 2020, the store was unable to open for its planned spring sale. The doors have remain closed since.
Although its a bit late to be selling clothes for the spring and summer season, their racks are full of them. They need to clear out some space so they can prepare for fall sales.*
The shop is run out of the basement of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church’s parish hall at 27 Main Street. It sells “quality recycled clothing at low prices” for Men, Women, Teens, and kids. They also sell shoes and accessories (but not jewelry). (The cover images features some of the items they advertised in spring 2019.)
The doors will open for 8 days this month:
- Thursdays, August 19th & 26th from 10am – 6pm
- Fridays, August 20th & 27th from 10 am – 3pm
- Saturdays, August 21st & 28th from 10am – 1pm
- Sundays, August 22nd & 29th from 12pm – 2pm
They will require all who enter to wear masks.
