Instead of packing last year's halloween costume away or throwing it in the garbage, The Mercer Island Thrift Shop is encouraging residents to drop it off as a donation, with an extra incentive of a $10-off coupon on a purchase of $30 or more.
Coupons are available from Donation Customer Service Attendants when donating a complete costume. One coupon is provided per donation drop off.
"Don't be caught dead in last year's costume," said MITS Coordinator Suzanne Philen.
All donations and purchases help support the programs and services of Mercer Island Youth and Family Services. MITS is located at 7710 SE 34th Street
Donation drop off hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Store hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
