The recent departure of Movie Gallery from Berryville was a blow to movie fans in town but it was a golden opportunity for The Blue Ridge Hospice. Residents will soon be able to enjoy a greatly expanded shopping experience at the thrift shop in Berryville as the Blue Ridge Hospice relocates into the former Movie Gallery location on Main Street.
“We’re so excited about the new location,” said Thrift Shop Regional Manager, Jacki Mumm. “With the additional space we will be able to offer all of the departments that we offer in our other thrift shops.”
The new store will have clothing departments for the entire family with men’s, women’s and chidren’s clothing departments and the new space will allow the Berryville Thrift Shop to sell furniture as well.
The thrift shop was already a member of the downtown community with its current location at 10 Main Street, but the new location will provide ample parking and a much more convenient location for donations and drop-offs.
Blue Ridge Hospice is a not-for-profit health care organization founded in 1981, providing physical, emotional, social and spiritual care for terminally ill patients and their families in the City of Winchester and the Frederick, Clarke, Warren, Shenandoah, Page, and western Loudoun counties of Virginia. Blue Ridge Hospice is regarded as an integral part of the health services system in the northern Shenandoah Valley and surrounding area. The Hospice operates 5 other thrift shops with locations in Purcellville, Front Royal, Stephens City and two store in Winchester. Proceeds from the thrift shops directly benefit Blue Ridge Hospice to allow them to provide hospice care and assisted living to any individual, regardless of his or her ability to pay.
The new, expanded location in Berryville is scheduled to open on June 1st.
