Bibles for Missions moves to new digs

The thrift store has relocated to the former Liquidation World site on Logan Avenue.

The Bibles for Missions thrift store is now in its new home and ready to open to the public.

The thrift store was located at 200th Street and 57th Avenue for many years but has now expanded and moved into the former location of the Liquidation World on Logan Avenue and 205th Street.

The store will be open as of Friday, Sept. 4, announced manager Arlene Roersma.

The new location will be operating Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The store will close on the big holidays but will be open Labour Day Monday, for instance.

She noted there will be a grand opening celebration Oct. 26.

Roersma said the change in hours will mean a little less time for shopping on weekdays but more time on Saturdays, to better serve customers.

The store move was impacted by the work needed to ready the new site, which is triple in size compared to the 200th Street store.

Helping smooth the moving process has been the thrift store’s contingent of about 100 volunteers.

“We’re always looking for more,” Roersma said.
