Li­brary thrift shop adds hours

News-Herald (Perkasie, PA) - - AROUND TOWN - By Bob Keeler

This week, the Friends of the Sa­muel Pierce Branch Li­brary’s thrift shop will be open for the first time on a Satur­day.

“Our clients asked us to see if we could do that,” Ginny Sny­der, thrift shop co­or­di­na­tor, said. “We’re hop­ing it’s go­ing to work out real nice.”

With the pre­vi­ous open hours on Wed­nes­days, many peo­ple were only able to get to the store at 819 Bloom­ing Glen Road in Hill­town — across the street from the Bloom­ing Glen post of­fice — on va­ca­tion days or other times they weren’t work­ing, and have asked for week­end hours to be added, Sny­der said.

The shop will now be open to cus­tomers 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. ev­ery Wed­nes­day, as it pre­vi­ously was, and is adding 9 a.m. to noon ev­ery Thurs­day and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. the last Satur­day of the month.

There is also a half­price sale on the last Wed­nes­day, Thurs­day and Satur­day of the month.

“Satur­day will al­ways be a half-price sale,” Sny­der said.

Do­na­tions were pre­vi­ously ac­cepted at the shop dur­ing the Thurs­day hours, but now it will also be open for cus­tomers to browse and buy.

“It was a day that we took in do­na­tions and cleaned,” Sny­der said. “Now we’re try­ing to give more hours for peo­ple to come in.”

Do­na­tions to the store will now be ac­cepted dur­ing the hours it is open each day it is open.

“We get new stuff in ev­ery week,” Sny­der said.

Items sold at the thrift shop in­clude cloth­ing for var­i­ous ages.

“We have house­wares, knick­knacks, jew­elry,” Sny­der said.

The shop does not have large ap­pli­ances or fur­ni­ture, she said.

“We just don’t have the space,” Sny­der said.

All pro­ceeds from the thrift shop ben­e­fit the li­brary lo­cated at 491 Arthur Ave. in Perkasie. For ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion about the thrift shop, call 215-964-0991.
