Yard Sales: Not just for yards anymore
Media Release March 9, 2011
Critteraid is proud to announce the opening of Penticton’s very first Indoor Yard Sale in their new retail location at 109 - 2203 Dartmouth Drive in Penticton. Yard salers will no longer have to limit their deal-seeking excitement to spring and summer, as not even the harshest of elements can stop this one. The doors will be open every Saturday starting March 19th from 7am–2pm and the Grand Opening is slated for Saturday, April 2. Shoppers and looky-loo’s alike are invited to come on down, check out the store and make some of those much needed purchases.
For those people getting ready to start their Spring Cleaning – we want your stuff! The dropoff location for your gently used items is at 3099 Coleman Street where the famous twice-a-year Critteraid Yard Sales used to take place. Please no dropoffs at the Dartmouth Drive location.
Do you have good sales skills and love dealing with people? We want you! Great volunteers are crucial to our success so please call Jean Bowden at 250-770-8068 if you’d like to help out.
100% of proceeds from the Critteraid Indoor Yard Sale will benefit the many projects (like CDART!) and critters of Critteraid.
For more information please contact Jean Bowden at 250-770-8068.
Critteraid, the Summerland Cat Sanctuary, was established in 1992 to provide refuge for unwanted, abused, and abandoned animals. The sanctuary currently hosts 93 cats, 17 guinea pigs, a donkey, an alpaca, and a beautiful horse called ‘Faith’ who was found frozen to someone’s driveway. Critteraid is a registered charity that operates entirely on donations, grants, and the generosity of its many volunteers.
