By Staff | Jul 24, 2019

PHOTO PROVIDED Shoppers purchase bags for $4 before entering Noah’s Ark for the annual Bag Day shopping.

The annual Bag Day event at Noah’s Ark is coming up on Aug. 9 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Customers can 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 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 the last days of August leading up to Bag Day. The event marks the end of the summer season at the store, which closes for cleaning and repairs afterward.

Operated by the Women of St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church for more than 50 years, Noah’s Ark offers for sale – at bargain prices – merchandise of all kinds, including women’s and men’s clothing, children’s clothes, bedding, kitchen electronics and housewares, furniture and home furnishings, and a varied selection of books – including excellent vacation reading- in its own book station, “Barnes & Noah.” Proceeds from the store’s sales, coupled with monies from the parish’s annual budget, go toward more than 25 local, regional and global charities and agencies.

On Oct. 1, Noah’s Ark will reopen for business on Tuesday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for the month. In November, the winter season’s full schedule will resume, which is weekdays and the first Saturday of each month from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Noah’s Ark does not accept donations between Aug. 9 and Sept. 1. After Sept. 1, donations are accepted – and appreciated. The Ark staff and St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church extend a heartfelt thanks to all donors who help to make the store’s charitable mission a continuing success.
