The moment many of you have been waiting for is finally happening.
The Chemainus Health Care Auxiliary Thrift Shop will be opening again next week following a long closure due to COVID-19.
President Diana Lenihan is pleased to get the message out to loyal customers and donors, who have been so patient during this time.
“We are so excited to be able to provide a service to our community once again,” she stated.
Monday, May 17 will mark the return for the drop-off of gently used items. Donations will be accepted again Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon.
The retail shop will reopen to the public as of Tuesday, May 18. Hours will continue to be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
“We ask for your continued use of retail protocol – masks at all times, sanitize, two-metre distance,” noted Lenihan. “This ensures that we all are respectful of others and we are abiding to the set of rules set by B.C. Health and Safety.
“We look forward to seeing you again and we thank you for your patience and understanding.”
Healthcare Auxiliaries Day was just celebrated on Saturday, May 8 so it’ll be a nice transition back into some semblance of normal business for the Chemainus organization and its volunteers.
