Through funding initially provided by the Lake/Geauga Fund of The Cleveland Foundation, the WomenSafe Resale Shoppe has become a shopping destination. Located at 12601 Chillicothe Road, Chesterland (in the Drug Mart Plaza) the Resale Shoppe greets shoppers Wednesday 10:00am-5:00pm, Thursday 10:00am-7:00pm, Friday 10:00am-5:00pm and Saturday 10:00am-4:00pm. Beginning in February the Shoppe will expand hours to include Tuesdays from 10:00am-5:00pm.
“WomenSafe has been very fortunate to benefit from the generosity of our community for many years,” commented the agency’s Executive Director Shayna Jackson. “The success of the Resale Shoppe only further adds to that testimony. We have been in awe with how many return shoppers and donors visit the store.”
WomenSafe would like to remind the community that all donated goods will continue to be made available to WomenSafe clients as the priority. It is only surplus items that are sold at the store. The Resale Shoppe offers clothing, furniture and household items to the public at drastically reduced prices. All profits directly support the mission of WomenSafe to provide emergency shelter and support services to survivors of domestic violence throughout Northeast Ohio.
The majority of those working in the store are volunteers, and many opportunities are available to collect, sort, display and sell merchandise. Contributions to The Resale Shoppe are tax-deductible. For more information, please call 440-729-2780.
