Greenville, SC (February 15, 2017) – Miracle Hill Thrift Operations, a non-profit social enterprise that contributes nearly one million dollars annually toward Miracle Hill Ministries’ shelters and programs for the homeless, has expanded its Taylors thrift store by nearly fifty percent. A grand re-opening event will be held Saturday, March 4th, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. at 2419 Wade Hampton Blvd. in Taylors.
“Out of our nine thrift stores across the Upstate, the Taylors store, which is also known as Miracle Mart, is our second largest in terms of sales volume, so the additional capacity and staff will help this store continue to play a key role in our thrift ministry,” said John Fiedler, Director of Sales and Sourcing for Miracle Hill Thrift Operations.”
The expansion of the Taylors store, which originally opened in 1998, was made possible when Miracle Hill Ministries moved its administrative offices from the space adjacent to the Taylors thrift store to its new location at 490 S. Pleasantburg Drive in Greenville. The 2016 move opened up an additional 8,400 square feet for Miracle Mart’s expansion as well as new offices for Miracle Hill’s Auto Sales division.
The grand re-opening event at the new 25,000 square foot store will include giveaways, on-site stylists to personalize the shopping experience, 25% off all purchases, and three spring runway fashion shows featuring local fashion bloggers (Nina Dunlap, Latasha Brewton, Wendi Matt, and more) in #ThriftSavvy looks. Local radio personalities from WSSL, WMYI and WRTH will be on hand to encourage shopping and donating. The store has been stocked with high quality clothing, furniture and home goods that will be sold at competitive prices. Doors will open at 9 a.m. Regular business hours will be Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
