Thrift Shop open house is Aug. 28

The Mercer Island Thrift Shop will host an open house this month about the proposed expansion of the store.

The meeting will take place from 3 to 5 p.m. on Aug. 28 at the Thrift Shop and will include a brief presentation.

City staff is hoping to gather input on the proposed remodel changes to the current Thrift Shop building. The remodeling goals include: reducing constricted traffic flow on S.E. 34th Street, increasing parking for people using the park and Thrift Shop customers, while also reducing street congestion, creating a separate donation drop-off zone, improving the storefront appearance and increasing revenues that help fund MIYFS counseling services.

Anyone with questions can contact MIYFS Director Cindy Goodwin at
