People lined up down the block to be first into the Care Closet thrift store in downtown Penticton on Monday (March 22) morning.
The non-profit thrift store, at 574 Main Street, did a spring change over of the store and inventory over the weekend and thrifters wanted to be the first to see what’s new.
The Care Closet also provided a a sneak peek of what’s in store on their Facebook page, showing a rare pink Pyrex set that will be quick to go.
Shopping time will be limited to 20 minutes per customer to ensure everyone gets a chance in the store. Regular hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Masks are mandatory, and social distancing applies.
The Care Closet Thrift Store re-opened in June 2020 after a two and a half month closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Proceeds from Care Closet purchases support several local organization and charities including the South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation, the Hospital Auxiliary and the Penticton and District Hospice Society.
