Beginning January 6, the Mercer Island Thrift Shop (MITS) will be open for business on Sundays.
"Extending the hours of the Thrift Shop to include Sundays is something residents have asked about for years," says Youth and Family Services (YFS) Director Cynthia Goodwin. Goodwin notes that opening Sundays is also a business decision as it will help YFS meet the high demand for mental health counseling, school counselors, emergency assistance, and other human services programs offered by the department. (All MITS proceeds support YFS services).
The city is also considering plans for expanding the Mercer Island Thrift Shop facilities.
New MITS store hours:
- Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
- Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
- Sunday, 12 to 5 p.m.
New hours for accepting donations:
- Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
