Value Village reopened Thursday, Aug. 4 in a larger space at 150 E. Bellis Fair Parkway, across the street from its old location.
“We’re very excited about the relocation of this store to a bigger, newer location,” store manager Laura Diaz-Price said in a press release. “The extra space will allow us to have even more quality items on the sales floor and process more donations, which will help garner additional revenue for our nonprofit partner, The Arc of Washington.”
With 30,000 square feet of retail space and 16,000 square feet of storage, the new store is about twice the size of the old one, and perhaps the largest in the Puget Sound region, district manager Brian Willey said. Value Village has 270 stores in the United States, Canada and Australia, 23 of which are in Washington.
The Bellingham location was closed for two weeks at the end of July to move inventory and hire additional staff.
“We added 10 employees for this store and we’ll probably add another 10 by September for our busy season,” Willey said, adding that Halloween is the busiest time of year for the company.
Value Village is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, call the store at (360) 733-2333 or visit www.valuevillage.com.
