TICONDEROGA - The Ticonderoga First United Methodist Church Thrift Shop committee has announced the appointment of Gayle Wells as the new manager of the thrift shop.
Wells assumed her duties recently upon the retirement of Marion Lamphere who was manager for six years.
The thrift shop has been active in the community for approximately 25 years. It was started by women of the First United Methodist Church as a consignment shop and quickly grew to be more than four times the original size.
In an effort to serve the needs of its customers and other outreach projects, the shop is staffed by volunteers. The thrift shop continues to rely on donations from the community making it possible to help individuals within the community and beyond as well as customers who can always find a bargain. The Ticonderoga First United Methodist Church Thrift Shop is located at 1045 Wicker St., up the hill from the hospital, in the downstairs area of the fellowship wing.
Donations of clean and useable clothing and household items are appreciated and may be brought to the shop when it is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
For additional information, call the shop at 585-2242 or the church office at 585-7995.
