Auxiliary Thrift Shop moving in Margaretville
The Auxiliary of Margaretville Hospital and Mountainside Residential Care Center will soon be moving its Thrift Shop to 850 Main Street, Margaretville.
The Thrift Shop will be relocating by mid-February to a building owned by Peter Neumann. The structure was completed renovated several years ago after being utilized for a long time as a warehouse for a plumbing store across the street.
The Thrift Shop has been located for the past 12 years on the ground floor of the Masonic Building. That building has been sold to the Delaware County Industrial Agency which will soon begin work to create an eCenter business incubator at the site.
When they learned of the possible sale, auxiliary officials began exploring new locations for the organization’s popular Thrift Shop.
The Neumann building (which is situated across the street from B&D Motors) offered a good fit in terms of a Main Street location and ample space.
“Our intention is to have a well-designed shop with a little of everything from clothing, housewares, bedding and linens, jewelry, toys and possibly some furniture,” commented Auxiliary President Sue Adams. “There will be plenty of storage space as well as a nice sized shop.”
Mrs. Adams said the new space site will provide approximately 1,300 square feet of shop space, which is similar to the present location.
In addition, an adjacent garage will be utilized for product sorting and storing seasonal items. A loft area will be used for office space, thus allowing the organization to keep everything in one place.
