The Martin Memorial Auxiliary Thrift Shop will be relocating to the Ocean East Mall in August.
To help prepare for the move, the Auxiliary is holding a “super moving sale” until Saturday, Aug. 7 at its current site, located at 2195 S.E. Ocean Blvd. in the Smithfield Plaza in Stuart. There will be great deals available on gently used merchandise, ranging from clothing to home furnishings and much more. Many items are marked at 50 percent off . The shop is open during its summer hours from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The telephone number is (772) 223-5619 for more information.
The thrift shop will open Aug. 18 at its new site, located at 2328 S.E. Ocean Blvd. in the Ocean East Mall just two shops down from Milam’s Market in Stuart.
The thrift shop provides funds that the Auxiliary uses to help Martin Memorial deliver care for the community. In 2009, the Auxiliary completed its $1 million pledge to the Frances Langford Heart Center, in part through funds it raised through the thrift shop. And each year, the Auxiliary provides $40,000 in scholarships for local students who are seeking degrees in health care related fields.
Martin Memorial has one of the largest hospital Auxiliaries in the state, featuring more than 800 volunteers who provide nearly 200,000 hours of service each year.
