The First Congregational Church of Greenwich is excited to announce the 53rd Grand Reopening of the Rummage Room on Tuesday, September 5 at 10:00 a.m.
Be the first to purchase goods of all kinds at bargain prices. Located at 191 Sound Beach Avenue in Old Greenwich, the entire store is restocked with ‘new’ merchandise.
Store hours are: Monday through Friday 10 a.m. – 5:00pm, Saturdays 10:00am – 1:00pm. Closed Sundays . Tel. (203-637-1875).
All money raised goes to charities that benefit women and children. On an annual basis the store generally raises $150-$175,000.
Though the prices are very reasonable — bargains indeed — over the past 51 years, the Rummage Room has contributed well over $ 4 million to charity.
The other popular day at the Rummage Room is April Fool’s Day, when volunteers serve as live mannequins in the store windows and spring signals an increase in foot traffic in the village of Old Greenwich.
Donations will be accepted beginning the following day, September 6. The store is operated by Leanne Meyer, manager, three assistant managers and over fifty volunteers from the church and community.
In addition to being known for bargains galore, the Rummage Room has won numerous awards for the creative window displays and is commonly known as the “best kept secret” in Fairfield County.
