Thank you to everyone who came out to visit us on our reopening weekend! It was such a delight to see the center buzzing with shoppers – both our regulars and new faces! After the success of this past weekend, we’ve made the decision to increase our customer capacity to 25 people at a time. All other health and safety protocols will remain in place.

We look forward to seeing you!

Many of you have probably been wondering, “When the heck is ACR going to reopen?”  We are beyond excited to announce that the time has finally come! 
Beginning April 1st, we will be open Thursday & Friday from 10AM – 8PM, Saturday from 11AM – 8PM and Sunday from 12PM – 6PM. We have an at-risk shopping hour from 10AM – 11AM on Saturday.
We are hopeful that the declining numbers of new COVID cases, the decreased positivity rate, and increased access to vaccines mean that this will be the last time that we are celebrating a reopening.
In order to minimize risk to our staff and community, we will continue to have the same health and safety protocols in place.  The public, staff, and volunteers will still be required to wear properly fitting masks when interacting with the center and to socially distance from others. See a full list of our current protocols and our Mask Policy along with an FAQ.
We can’t wait to welcome you back! 🧡

Despite the governor’s actions yesterday, ACR is committed to keeping the safety of our community first and foremost in all of the decisions we make.  We will continue to require masks and proper social distancing by staff members, volunteers and community members.  This includes while making donations, attending sidewalk sales and when the center reopens.

    Do have any idea when ACR will reopen? I’m having withdrawal symptoms.

      We hear you! At the moment, we feel the best decision is for the center to remain closed. We are staying informed of all local, state, and national guidelines, and will be re-evaluating the closure on a weekly basis. In the meantime, we’re constantly adding new inventory to the online store and have other exciting programs in the works!
