New Location For Thrift Store Benefiting Animal Shelter

A grand re-opening was held this week for a thrift store in Wayne County that helps to support the Dessin Animal Shelter.
A grand re-opening was held this week for a special thrift store in Wayne County.

"The Cat's Pajamas" has a new location and all of the proceeds from the shop go to support the Dessin Animal Shelter.

Linda Whitman was on a mission Thursday. She was looking for deals in the new thrift shop's new location.

"Oh, I love the new location. The shop is wonderful," Whitman said.

The thrift shop started in Seelyville in 2006 but expanded and relocated in 2008 to 8th Street in Honesdale.

The store has moved once again. It is now located at 621 Main Street.

"The customers don't have to go down the steps anymore," store manager Jeralyn Hancock said. "It's a little bit easier access. We do have access to the second floor so that's really nice."

This is no ordinary thrift shop.

All of the proceeds go to benefit the dogs, cats and animals at the Dessin Animal Shelter on Miller Drive.

With an ever-increasing need, the money that comes into the store really helps to keep the shelter running.

"We've seen a rise in cruelty unfortunately and we've also seen a rise in the abandonment of animals," Dara Coslett Granza, Executive Director of the Olga and Dorothea Dessin Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said.

All of the items in the store are donated.

Managers are hoping the new visible location will expose them to even more customers.

"We have everything from Waterford Crystal to different baby items and certainly clothing, pet items, it's really a treasure hunt when you come to the Cat's Pajamas," Coslett Granza said.

"Our donations have probably tripled since we moved to this location. We have donations coming in almost everyday," Hancock said.

The new thrift shop location is open six days a week. It is closed on Sundays.
