A reduced number of shoppers will be allowed in the store at any given time. Social distancing will be in place and sanitizer will be available.

The SSVP Thrift Store re-opening and day to day operations will take place under the direction of newly-appointed Store Manager, Kristine Paul. “I would like to welcome our shoppers back to our Thrift Store and assure them that our updated COVID-19 protocols will be enforced and are in place to keep everyone comfortable and safe.” stated Mrs. Paul.

Kristine Paul is happy to see some familiar faces, “We are looking forward to seeing our loyal Thrift Store shoppers again and to serving our neighbours in need when our store re-opens.” SSVP Thrift Store volunteers provide furniture, household items, clothing, and free food to our neighbours in need. To those we serve, if you require emergency items like those listed call the Thrift Store at 519-751-0143 and you will be referred to the SSVP branch in your area.
