(Aug. 17, 2018) Worcester County Humane Society will hold a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday, Aug. 21 from 4-6 p.m. for its new thrift store, located at 12703 Sunset Ave. in West Ocean City.

The Ocean City Chamber of Commerce will facilitate the 4:30 p.m. ribbon cutting.

The public is invited to come celebrate the grand opening and ribbon cutting. Aside from shopping, attendees will be able to meet some of the store volunteers and shelter board members. There will also be light refreshments.

The thrift store is completely run by volunteers and all proceeds directly benefit the animals at the no-kill shelter. Volunteers are always needed and those interested should call 410-213-9400. Store hours are Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Worcester County Humane Society is a private, nonprofit, no kill animal shelter that houses 150-plus cats and 25 dogs until their forever homes can be found. The shelter is open every day except Mondays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
