Port Angeles Serenity House thrift store to see changes, sets big sale

PORT ANGELES — The Serenity House Port Angeles Thrift Store is dropping prices as it works to empty its historical church building in preparation for a business reorganization.

“Serenity House’s Sequim thrift store, in the past year, provided over $300,000 to pay for homeless services in Clallam County,” Serenity House Executive Director Richard Robinson said.

“The Port Angeles store will undergo a complete redesign to position it to also contribute substantially to our agency mission of preventing and ending homelessness.”

From now until the Port Angeles store closes Saturday, all merchandise is 75 percent off the ticket price.

The available inventory at the store at 502 E. First St. includes furniture, collectibles, housewares, home decor, clothing, books and specialty items.

“Serenity House is actively seeking a new and larger building to expand and an entrepreneurial store manager who also wishes to see the product of their efforts improve the lives of our less fortunate neighbors in Clallam County,” Robinson said.

The Serenity House Thrift Store at 551 W. Washington St., Sequim, continues to operate seven days a week and will expand weekly pickup of donations from Port Angeles, program officials said.

People with quality items to donate are encouraged to call 360-683-8269 to schedule pickup or drop-off.

“All successful thrift stores owe their success to volunteers who make them a warm and bargain-filled place to shop,” Robinson said.

Volunteers interested in supporting the Sequim store or being part of the changes at the Port Angeles store can leave a message at 360-452-7224, ext. 302, or email doc.robinson@ serenityhouseclallam.org.

“With the community behind us, we lift our neighbors and our county,” Robinson added.
