RAPS opens second thrift store in old Danny’s Market

Regional Animal Protection Society (RAPS) has opened its second thrift store, and its new home is in a rather familiar Richmond location.

Located in the old Danny’s Market – home to the famous Danny’s Screamers – RAPS’ second thrift shop has been testing its operation with a soft opening since July 28. On Aug. 18 at 10 a.m., the store will host its grand opening complete with a community BBQ and sidewalk sale.

“We enjoyed a very successful and busy soft opening of the second RAPS Thrift Store at 9040 Francis Road (at Garden City),” said the animal protection society on Facebook. “The store is bright and large and we carry all sorts of amazing treasures from furniture to clothing, housewares (and) home accents.”

Now, RAPS is looking for more volunteers to work at its second location. Opportunities include processing incoming donations of items and working at the cashier. Shifts are typically two to four hours.

“This is perfect opportunity for those with previous experience or those keen to gain some valuable retail experience,” said RAPS.
