Hope Healthcare’s resale store offering bargains Monday

By Staff | Oct 3, 2018

Columbus Day will be a great day to shop for bargains – and help a local charity.

Hope Chest Resale Stores in North Fort Myers and Bonita Springs are celebrating Columbus Day on Monday by offering shoppers 50 percent off the price of most items.

Hope Chest stores feature designer-brand clothing and accessories, high-quality furniture, sporting equipment, electronics, games, antiques and unique collectibles.

With the recent addition of 7,000 square feet of retail space, the North Fort Myers Hope Chest store offers an expanded selection of home decor such as lighting, silk flowers, artwork, wedding dresses.

Amy Objartel, of Hope Healthcare, said the expansion to include the old Color Tile location, has allowed Hope Chest to bring in more and newer offerings, with something for everyone.

“We needed the space because we have so much inventory to get on the floor. We knocked out a wall and finished the space,” Objartel said. “Silks by New also donated their flower inventory when they closed. So, we have this tremendous supply of silk flowers.”

Objartel said the sale also allows Hope Chest to downsize its inventory and bring in new merchandise.

“These sales are always an opportunity to get people into the stores and keep coming. We are huge and have a lot of furniture. A lot of stores don’t have the space,” Objartel said.

No coupons are necessary for the sale, and some exceptions may apply. Hope Chest Resale stores are open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

Hope Chest in North Fort Myers is at 13821 N. Cleveland Ave.

Hope Chest in Bonita Springs is at 28520 Bonita Crossings Blvd.

Proceeds from Hope Chest benefit unfunded programs and services of Hope Healthcare, which provides care and support to individuals with complex needs related to life-changing illness.
