OAKHURST — Local thrift shop, A-Cause-4-Paws is celebrating August with a blockbuster shoe and purse sale and deep discounts for some of those who need it most.
All through the month, the store is offering Mariposa fire victims a 50 percent discount storewide.
“We hope this discount helps them with the traumas that they’ve experienced over the past weeks,” says Cause 4 Paws owner Vicki Deane. Please bring an ID to receive the discount.
Also in August, and for all customers, select purses are on sale for $1 each, and select shoes will be on sale for $1 a pair. The sale applies to men’s and women’s shoes, including big brands like Crocks, America Eagle, Florsheim, Clarks and Adidas, with many sizes and styles to choose from.
The store is also placing all of its motorcycle gear — including jackets and boots — at 50% discount. All other clothing is on sale for $1.50 per piece.
Cause 4 Paws is on the lookout for volunteers to sort, test and stock products for the sales areas. They say cleaners are also needed. Volunteers can choose their hours and receive store credit for your time and expertise.
As regular customers may already know, all military personnel receive a 25 percent discount on all purchases. The only exclusions to all of these discounts are on the purchase of consignment items.
Animal lovers and others, please remember that the store is collecting empty cans, bottles and glass containers. These items will be recycled and, at the end of the month, all proceeds will be donated to the store’s spay and neuter program. Foothill residents are encouraged to collect their recyclables in plastic bags and to bring their donations any time during the month.
For every 13-gallon bag or a single equivalent donation the donor will receive a $10 punch on their Frequent Buyer card. When the card is full, it can be traded for free merchandise at the thrift store.
The thrift shop is locally known as a cat rescue and they have found homes for more than 500 abandoned cats and kittens. They also donate a $500 college scholarship to a local graduating high school senior each year called the “Future Veterinarian Award.”
