St. Vincent de Paul relocating thrift shop
The Prince George Citizen, April 19, 2017
There's a new thrift shop in store for the St. Vincent de Paul Society.
The local non-profit that provides meals 365 days a year to those in need at the Drop In Centre in the downtown core of Prince George needed a bigger space for the thrift shop and after a two-year search found a new location.
The former Golden Palace Chinese restaurant, across from the Native Friendship Centre, at 1645 Third Ave., is the ideal location for the new store, which could be open as soon as August.
The society has been at its current location at 1180 Third Ave., since 1983, which is 3,000 square feet in size.
The new location will offer 4,300 square feet, including a basement and storage area. When the new location opens, it will be able to accept donations of furniture and appliances
