December 08, 2010 - Society of St. Vincent de Paul opened its newest Thrift Store on 5395 Dixie Highway with a Blessing Ceremony, Dec. 2.

"People are hurting all over the store will be a great benefit to the area," said Bill Brazier of Clarkston, executive director for St. Vincent de Paul, southeast Michigan. "We'll be wherever we need to be to do the most good and help the most people."

"It was a lot of hard work, and there's still a lot of work to do," said Larry Griffin, store manager in Clinton Township and member of the society's Operations Team for southeast Michigan. "A number of people have already offered donations and to volunteer."

The store has sections offering apparel, most $1-$5, boutique items in St. Vincent de Paul's Dress for Success program, miscellaneous items, and a full-service donation center.

Proceeds from the store support the society's programs for the poor.
