FOCUS ON SCHOHARIE: Please help support our local businesses!
Opened in mid-July this year, Schoharie’s New Beginnings Thrift Shop, 322 Main Street (295-7467), is a Schoharie County ARC store. Gently used donated items in the store, including clothing, housewares, furniture, books and more, are for sale at very reasonable prices. Open Tuesday through Friday 10 AM to 6 PM and Saturday, 10 AM to 2 PM (closed Sunday and Monday), the store accepts major credit cards, has easy parking, AND your purchases help to provide a work experience and salary for ARC consumers. Denise Henness is the manager and currently has seven consumers working at the store. A small café has recently been added selling coffee and baked goods from the Carrot Barn.
If you are interested in donating a few items for the store, you can take them to the store. Large and/or numerous items should be taken to the main campus on Route 30 (295-8130).
We appreciate that Schoharie County ARC chose Schoharie for their New Beginnings store to help bring back Schoharie and to further their mission --To Serve and Support Individuals with Differing Abilities. Stop in and look around at the every changing inventory, pick up something at the café, and help support this very worthwhile venture! And this week (through Saturday) everything in the store is 50% off (except furniture) to get ready for changing inventory.
