St. John Thrift Shop reopens on Feb. 6

By Sheryl Roadcap -

SIDNEY — St. John Thrift Shop located at 319 S. Ohio Ave. will reopen for business on Monday, Feb. 6, at 10 a.m.

The thrift shop closed this week after former Director Barbie Covault resigned, leaving no one to run the nonprofit organization.

The shop sells smaller, second-hand items, such as clothes, jewelry, DVDs, CDs, books and more. Its purpose is to help those in need with unpaid bills up to $25. Qualified candidates are only eligible once every six months for assistance.

Newly hired Director Molly Schriber commended Covault for her work at the thrift shop.

“I want to congratulate (Covault) on her great job here. She’ll be missed,” Schriber said.

Schriber said the shop accepts donations ideally during the business hours of Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., but if necessary, they can be left on the front porch area during off hours.

She said volunteers are always welcome. The volunteer time slots are from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

People seeking financial assistance are asked to call ahead to set an appointment with Schriber during business hours. For more information call 937-492-2175.
