Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League's Thrift Store
will close its doors after 42 years
West Palm Beach, FL - After 42 wonderful years, Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League's Thrift Store located at 1905 South Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach is closing at the end of December, 2015. The entire inventory which includes, clothes, furniture and house ware is now 50 percent off and everything must go! The store is open Monday through Saturday, from 9:00am to 6:00pm.
Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League’s Thrift Store opened in 1973 as an extra source of funding for the League.
Recently, due to adjacent business development, the Thrift Store has lost the ability to make parking available for the League's customers and donors. Without access to parking, Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League came to the difficult conclusion that the Thrift Store could not continue operating successfully. "We wish we could have continued operating our Thrift Store far into the future, but without adequate parking it potentially could become a financial burden to the League and its primary mission of saving lives," said Rich Anderson, Executive Director and CEO of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.
The building is currently under contract to be sold before the end of the year. At this time there are no plans to relocate the store.
"We are grateful for the support from countless friends who have donated items, the customers we've had for the past 42 years, and for the incredible volunteers who made it all possible," said Rich Anderson. "We hope our Thrift Store friends and customers will continue to support the animals and visit Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League’s pet adoption center at 3100/3200 N. Military Trail, West Palm Beach."
