The look on your faces said it all!

Stunned… Overwhelmed… Awestruck…

Or maybe that was the look on our faces as we watched the crowds assemble early Saturday morning of Feasterville Grand Opening Day, April 21, 2012.  “How many people do you think are out there?” “The line goes all the way past the Acme!” “Where did they all come from?”

The day started with a quiet morning meeting, a prayer… and then the store opened with a ribbon cutting and a bang!first two shoppers in line at 9:15 am day of our grand opening feasterville

The first line of the day started forming around 9am at our front door… with these two lovely ladies who were determined to be first in the door – and they may have also been last to leave!

From there the line just grew until it stretched all the way past Staples, PETCO and stretched almost past Acme!

At 10 am Paul Baur,  CEO, and various Impact Thrift Store Board Members, executives, store management and staff, Lower Bucks Chamber of Commerce representatives and community leaders including the Police and Fire personnel from Feasterville cut the ribbon and Impact Thrift Store Feasterville was officially open to the public!

The last person in line!

As the crowds entered the store, they were stunned by its sheer size, brightness and spaciousness. The merchandise selection was fabulous, all due to your generous donations of gently-used items over the course of the last year.

Let the thrifting begin!
