St. Vincent de Paul to Relocate Thrift Store

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — The Mahoning County District of St. Vincent De Paul has started the process of identifying a new location to relocate its thrift store to better serve low-income families.

The current thrift store will close September 9. The current location at 400 Williamson Avenue was a temporary option until a new location could be found.

SVDP is announcing an immediate sale of all items which will be sold at more than 50% off. The organization will no longer be taking donations until the new store opens.

“We are excited to begin the process of finding a location for our new store. We are confident that we will be better able to serve the community in the future with a permanent location for our store,” said Michael Stepp, executive director of Saint Vincent De Paul in Mahoning County.

“Our faith teaches us to meet the needs of struggling families in our community. We believe we will be able to better serve our guests in the future at a new location. We will continue to meet the needs of our guests and the community through our pantry and kitchen while we find a permanent home for our Thrift Store,” added Anne Kravitz, board president for SVDP, Mahoning County District.

SVDP would like to thank the many volunteers, financial supporters, board members, guests who rely upon its services, and the Youngstown Diocese for their support throughout this exciting process while it finds a new location.
