PLYMOUTH — The Plymouth Area Community Closet has been affected by the Covid pandemic and has had to make difficult decisions. Due to the lack of adequate volunteers and other complexities of retail sales, the Board of Directors decided to close the Thrift Shop on South Main St. in Plymouth in late March. The former clothing inventory is now at LADDERS, another thrift shop on South Main St. which supports area veterans and the Bridge House. When life returns to “normal” it is hoped that PACC can re-open another thrift shop in the area to continue to serve their customers.

We accept many different kinds of announcements. Just click on the button below and submit a form.
