New WCCA thrift shop to open in Hendersonville Tuesday, Dec. 1

Press release from Western Carolina Community Action:

When WCCA’s Bargain Hunt Thrift Shop opens for business on Tuesday, December 1st, it will also mark the start of a new holiday tradition – Countdown to Christmas. In addition to providing a source for inexpensive clothing and household goods, Bargain Hunt will help fund WCCA’s programs including: Children’s Services, Housing, Transportation, and Older Adult Services throughout four Western NC Counties.

Standing out in Hendersonville’s active resale marketplace requires thinking outside the box. Or, in this case, thinking outside 24 boxes. Store manager Belinda Sawyer exclaimed, “That little surprise each morning just adds to the fun and anticipation of the holidays. So the new tradition at Bargain Hunt is to celebrate the season with a Countdown Calendar of Discounts.” Each day in December, Bargain Hunt will reveal a new discount for customers to enjoy. On December 1st, customers can buy one item and get another at half price throughout the store.

“Bargain Hunt is an exciting new venture for WCCA,” said CEO, David White. “The store adds to our visibility in Henderson County and offers many ways for people to get involved, by donating, volunteering, shopping or simply telling their friends about us. More than 90% of the store’s proceeds will go directly towards supporting WCCA’s programs and services that help our underserved neighbors in our community.”

Located at the corner of North King Street and 2nd Avenue in Hendersonville, Bargain Hunt is open to the public 10 AM – 4 PM Monday – Friday, and 10 AM – 2 PM on Saturday. Donations of gently used clothing, furniture and household goods are appreciated. Volunteer opportunities are also available. Call Bargain Hunt at 828-435-3880 for more information.
