The Elk Valley Thrift Shop is opening their Christmas location

The Elk Valley Thrift Shop will soon open its doors to its Christmas Store, set up in honour of the holiday season.

Located directly behind the Elk Valley Thrift Shop in the old engineering offices in Sparwood, the temporary store will be open for two to three weeks and will sell only holiday-themed goods.

“We have everything related to Christmas, anything from lights to trees to ornaments to dishes to ugly sweaters – you name it, we got it,” said Katrin Taylor, manager at the Elk Valley Thrift Shop and organizer of the Christmas Store. “It’s phenomenal the way it’s been displayed, we have a girl here that is very talented, and it’s like something that you would find in the city.”

All of the sales from the Christmas store will be donated to local charities. Last year, the store raised around $4,000, which was all put back into the community. This year, Taylor said that they are hoping for more.

“It’s going to be more this year because we have more stuff. It’s going to be a little crazy,” she said.

Opening day will be on Nov. 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will feature refreshments and door prizes. The store’s hours of operation are from Tuesday through Saturday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Taylor noted that the Christmas location will accept cash only. The benefactors of the donations will be announced at the beginning of December.
