Carepartners Foundation Estate Sales and Hospice Thrift Store launches online shop

Press release from Words & Moore:

In preparation for moving to their new location at 75 Fairview Road, CarePartners Foundation Estate Sales and Hospice Home Store will close at their current location on November 30. But area treasure hunters need not worry. While the move is taking place, CarePartners Foundation will launch their first on-line shop at in early December.

“We timed the move to coincide with the launch of our on-line store. This way, our customers can still shop while we’re preparing the new space for our grand re-opening in January,” said Skip Wade, Manager of CarePartners Foundation Estate Sales Services. “The online store is an idea we’ve been working on for some time. It means that customers can buy any time of the day or night and in between estate sales.”

Donations will be accepted at the old location 105 Fairview Road through December 31. “We are encouraging people to bring us as many donations as they can between now and the end of the year so we can kick off 2017 in a big way,” Wade said.
“Our new landlord is doing a terrific job of designing the new space to fit the unique needs of our estate sales and Hospice home store. Customers will notice the difference immediately in the way merchandise is displayed,” said Wade.

An additional benefit to donors and the staff is on-site warehousing. “By having warehousing on-site, we can increase our efficiency and serve more clients,” Wade said. “As demand for our services continues to grow, we need a space that will grow with us. This location does that.”

      Hi Adrienne
      Sorry for the late reply. We are not offering our thrift store items online, only a few of our estate sale items will be available. Our thrift store is now open to the public at 75 Fairview Rd, 28803.
