Noah’s Ark to host annual Bag Day for shoppers looking for great deals

By Staff | Jul 16, 2018

JAN HOLLY Shoppers purchase bags for $4 before entering Noah’s Ark at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church for Bag Day shopping.

Noah’s Ark, an island thrift shop at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church, will host its annual Bag Day event on Aug. 10 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Customers may buy marked bags in the parking lot for $4 each, fill them with store goods and walk away with as many items as the bags will carry. They can purchase as many $4 bags as they wish.

Any items that do not fit in a bag are 80 percent off the regular price.

Deep price reductions are also available in August in the days leading up to Bag Day. The event marks the end of summer season for Noah’s Ark, which closes after Aug. 10 for cleaning and any repairs.

The store will reopen on Oct. 2 on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. In November, it will resume winter hours, weekdays and the first Saturday of each month – 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Noah’s Ark does not accept donations between Aug. 10 and Sept. 1.

Operated by the Women of St. Michael’s for more than 50 years, the thrift shop offers merchandise of all kinds at bargain prices, including women’s and men’s clothing, children’s clothes, bedding, kitchen electronics and housewares, furniture and home furnishings, along with a varied selection of books at the “Barnes & Noah” book station.

Proceeds from Noah’s Ark sales, coupled with monies from the parish’s annual budget, go to more than 25 local, regional and global charities and agencies. The staff and church extend heartfelt thanks to all donors who make the store’s charitable mission a continuing success.
