PAWS Thrift & Gift Shoppe To Open Sales Floor

June 13th, 2019

On Saturday, June 15, 2019, at 10 A.M. the PAWS Thrift & Gift Shoppe at 5243 Highway 70W in Morehead City NC will open the sales floor in this new location. A grand re-opening will be announced soon.

PAWS began packing up to relocate last September. Hurricane Florence had catastrophic effects on both the old and the new store locations. Our new store, along with many other businesses and homes in Carteret County has only recently been (almost) completed (we still need a roof). Alas we must open regardless as we have had no income during this time and insurance is slow to settle.

Our new location has very little storage space. We will open our sales floor first so we can sell inventory and free up space in order to begin accepting merchandise donations again soon. We truly want your donations so please be patient as we work through this issue (and we will I promise).

Thank you for supporting our mission and shopping with PAWS!
