Catholic Charities Thrift Store in Wellsville, 67 East Pearl St., will reopen to the public for two days each week beginning Tuesday, Sept. 29 for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic began eight months ago.
Thrift Store hours will be Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Masks must be worn and social distancing guidelines will be followed.
The Food Pantry at the same location operates Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., still operating on a curbside pickup basis.
Jim Campbell, who coordinates the Wellsville Food Pantry and Outreach, is grateful to welcome patrons back to the thrift store.
“While the pantry has been operating continuously since March, it is so good to be able to reopen the Thrift Store even at a reduced schedule,” said Campbell.
At the same location, Catholic Charities Family and Community Services offers counseling for children, adults and families and emergency assistance. Professional, licensed and master’s-level counseling experts provide these services, and no one is turned away because of an inability to pay.
