New thrift store moving into bigger space

After less than a month in operation, the River's Mouth Resale thrift store is moving into a new space twice as large.

They need more room "due to overwhelming support," owner Kelly Ellis said Thursday.

Ellis, who opened the store April 4, said they plan to accept their last donations at the current spot on Lynch Street next to Groundswell on Saturday - the same day River's Mouth plans to open in the Churchill Building, behind Baked for Breakfast. It's the storefront where Silver Liningz Boutique used to be before it moved to Front Street.

The thrift store hours will remain the same - 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day but Sunday.

The type of donations accepted will be the same, too: Everything, as long as it's clean.

The bigger space will allow Ellis to spread out and better organize so people can see what they have.

"People have been really generous with their donations," she said.

Melanie Schilling was shopping in the thrift store Thursday morning.

"It's a nice place to get rid of stuff," she said. "Feels like a mall. They have new stuff a lot, and prices are right, and they always have friendly people working."
