Critteraid Charity Shoppe relocates

Next month, the Critteraid Charity Shoppe will move to a larger location on Victoria Road North.

A little more than a year ago, in July, 2012, Critteraid’s Charity Shoppe opened at its location on the second storey of a building on Main Street.

Next month, the store will move to a larger location as it occupies the former Penny Lane Bargain Outlet building on Victoria Road North.

The building was purchased by Cynthia Kereluk and Paul Rodgers, who had also purchased the earlier Critteraid Charity Shop location.

Kereluk and Rodgers purchased the larger building to provide Critteraid with a bigger space on street level.

Deborah Silk, president of Critteraid, said the new location will allow access to some who could not handle the stairs in the existing space.

The store is near the Summerland Health Care Auxiliary Thrift Shop and the newly opened Full Circle Outlet store.

Silk believes the three shops will compliment each other as customers will stay in the area to visit all three.

Kereluk and Rodgers have supported Critteraid and other animal charities in the past.

“The generosity of Cynthia and Paul is beyond imagination,” Silk said. “Not only are the animals at Critteraid Farm benefiting from the sales at the Critteraid Charity Thrift Shoppe, but our Outreach Program has grown substantially helping people with their animals throughout the community.  We are all so enormously grateful to these kind, caring and compassionate human beings for making this all possible.”

Volunteers will move to the new location on Friday, Nov. 1 beginning at 9 a.m.

The new store will be open beginning at 11 a.m. that day.
