Ministry opens a thrift store


Choose Life Ministries founder Shelly Boyes stands amid some of the items available at the organization's new thrift store.

Chose Life Ministries is opening a thrift store in the 1200 block of Fourth Street in Estevan, as it continues to fundraise so that it can construct a facility in southeast Saskatchewan to help young women facing life-controlling issues.

Founder Shelly Boyes said the thrift store has all the merchandise typically found in such a business, including clothes and footwear for adults and children, jewelry, books, DVDs, antiques, collectibles, and small household items, electronics and furniture.

She said it is slated to open on Tuesday, April 15. Boyes and Choose Life supporters have been working hard since late March to get the store ready.

“It's an idea that we've been tossing around for some time, and then when spring hit … and this building became available, the board decided that it was time to launch the project, and generate some income through a business that would help both the community and the ministry as well,” said Boyes.

It also gives Choose Life a stronger presence in Estevan, and a chance to create more awareness about their ministry.

The thrift store won't accept baby items, such as cribs, strollers or car seats, because of safety issues. They also don't want large furniture, mattresses or appliances.

All funds raised through the thrift store will be directed towards Choose Life.
