Iona-Hope’s One More Time Thrift Store

09/23/2020

Dear Friends,

 

This afternoon, I signed the lease on a new location for our One More Time Thrift Store. The new location is The Shoppes at PaddleCreek at 8750 Gladiolus Drive, Unit 9C. This shopping center is located at the corner of Gladiolus and Winkler where Fuzzy’s Tacos is located. Our storefront is between the Coast Guard Exchange and Advance Auto. They are building out this space and we anticipate moving in October.

 

The loss of Big Lots and other stores and restaurants from our current shopping center caused a significant drop in our income. This coupled with COVID-19 and the resulting closing has hit us hard. We believe that we can and will recover at our new location and that we will exceed our abilities in our former location. We are grateful to find such a location and appreciate the hard work of our Sr. Warden, Joe Mulino and our store manager, Eileen Carrera in this endeavor.

 

We will keep you up to date with the move and our opening.

Peace, Ray+
