Shelter Thrift Store needs a new home
Sep 14, 2013 / 9:38 am
After ten years of operation, the Kelowna Women’s Shelter Thrift store, located at 527 Lawrence Ave, is set to close at the end of October due to sale of the building.
“We had outgrown the space and have, for some time, been looking for a new location, but it has been hard to find a suitable space,” said Karen Leboe, Administration Manager at the Shelter.
“What we are trying to find is a commercial space centrally located, with convenient parking and between 2000 and 3000 square feet. We also have to consider the price per square foot.”
The Thrift Store was planning on celebrating the Anniversary of Ten Years in business this month.
“The need to move has been stressful for staff and will be disappointing to clients and customers who have benefited from the store“.
The Kelowna Women’s Shelter has offered a safe place for women and children impacted by family violence and abuse since 1980. The Shelter provides emergency response to abuse crises, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with Crisis and support counseling, emergency accommodation, child care, and individual and group counseling for women and their children.
The Shelter also provides outreach in the community through support in alternate locations, accompaniment to appointments, community education, awareness and prevention activities.
If you can help in any way with their relocation dilemma, please call Karen at 250-763-1040 or email [email protected]
