July 31, 2007

Repeat Performance Thrift Shop, operated by the Washington County Hospital Auxiliary Inc., held a grand opening celebration at its new store on Friday, July 13.

"The opening of our new store was made possible by hospital administration and staff, volunteers and the support of the community through donations," said Delores Rice, past president of the auxiliary.

The store, at 18706 Crestwood Drive, off Pennsylvania Avenue in Hagerstown, sells a variety of gently-used merchandise, including clothing, shoes, handbags and small household items. More than 300 shoppers stopped by the store for the grand opening.

"We pride ourselves in selling only what we would buy, wear or use ourselves," said Linda Hovis, president of the auxiliary. "When working at the shop, many of our volunteers purchase items to take home with them."

Dr. Robert Brooks, vice president of medical affairs at Washington County Hospital, said the thrift shop is a wonderful place for people in the community.

"The thrift shop is a place where people cannot only buy items at a reduced cost, but can also donate items that will ultimately benefit patients at the hospital."

Sales of donated items at the thrift shop are used to buy equipment, supplies and other items for patient care at Washington County Hospital.

Store hours are Tuesday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
