Encore Resale Shop to Close Effective July 29th; Visit the Store for Great Final Deals!

June 30, 2016

After much consideration and careful analysis, the David Lawrence Center Encore Resale Shop will close effective Friday, July 29th.

Over the last several years, there has been a steady decline in sales at the store. The demand for high-quality used furniture has been declining and the ease and resulting growth in internet shopping makes it very difficult for smaller-scale resale shops to succeed. Despite our best efforts, we have been unable to improve profitability and future projections show a very limited opportunity for growth.

As we work to liquidate the current inventory, remaining merchandise will be sold at greatly reduced prices. Encore will continue to accept donations brought to the store through Saturday, July 16; however, those requesting donation pickup will be referred to other resale shops listed below. What we are unable to sell will be donated to other local not-for-profit resale stores. As always, the net proceeds of all Encore sales are reinvested back into the mission-specific programs of the David Lawrence Center.

We are forever grateful for our many dedicated volunteers, our store manager, our donors and customers who have been a part of the Encore Resale Shop for the past 35 years. We appreciate your continued support of the David Lawrence Center and to those in need of mental health and substance abuse services in our community.
