WARWICK — The Warwick Hope Chest Thrift Boutique in Pine Island is opening its new “Magical Christmas Shoppe” from Saturday, Nov. 4, through Nov. 16, offering everything needed to decorate for the holidays.
The sale of these new and gently refurbished decorations, from wreathes, garland, holiday displays and fun items the whole family will enjoy at a fraction of the cost offered in retail outlets, will support the Clothing Closet which provides free clothing and home goods to families in need.
“Our community has been so generous in donating holiday items throughout the year allowing us to reuse and repurpose decorations that will have a new life this season,” said Laura Shanahan, a manager at The Warwick Hope Chest. “Shoppers will get a great bargain and help their neighbors at the same time in the true holiday spirit.”
Besides the Christmas Shoppe, The Warwick Hope Chest will discount its already low prices on holiday formal wear for women and men, including dresses, shoes and accessories for the holiday season, as well as special sales in each area.
The Warwick Hope Chest offers new and gently used clothing, shoes and accessories for the entire family. In addition to clothing, shoppers can find a full array of home goods and linens as well as discounted formal wear and accessories.
“We are currently seeking new volunteers to assist us not only during this busy season, but all year long,” added Shanahan.
