The electrical fire at Senior Thrift in Freeland damaged almost all of its inventory. Now, Island Senior Resources is looking to restock the shelves.

Donation boxes will be reopened at the Freeland store on weekends from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. starting this Saturday, Aug. 26, said Cheryn Weiser, executive director of Island Senior Resources. Though the reopening of the store is still a few months away, people are invited to donate anything and everything, she said.

“You name it, we’ll take it,” Weiser said. “We’re trying to restock it for opening hopefully later in the fall.”

The store closed in July after an electrical fire broke out in the attic. Weiser said other thrift stores have been so inundated with donations that they’ve had to stop accepting them.

“They just couldn’t process them fast enough,” Weiser said.
