Saskatoon’s Village Green Thrift Shop held a grand opening celebration at its new location in Saskatoon on Feb. 11. The all-in-one location, situated on 33rd Street, takes the place of the separate thrift shop, and a furniture store in the city’s Riversdale neighbourhood. Both of the original buildings are now for sale.
“We had simply outgrown those spaces”, said Martin Irving, thrift manager for Mennonite Central Committee Saskatchewan. “We did our best to make it work within those spaces for the last decade, but the time had come for a change.”
