Synergy In Style Thrift Store - Closed February 2017
Synergy Services has closed the doors of the thrift store it operated for 17 years at 6571 N. Oak Trafficway in the Gladstone Plaza.
“While the store provided a wonderful way to accept donations of clothing and household items to benefit our clients, it also required significant resources to operate,” said Robin Winner, Executive Director at Synergy.
Rather than continue to operate the stand-alone store, Synergy will partner with Hillcrest Platte County (HPC) which serves local homeless families and currently operates two thrift stores in the Northland.
Those that donated to the Synergy thrift store in the past are encouraged to drop off future donations to either of the HPC stores, which will provide Synergy clients with the clothing and household items they need. The stores, located at 6520 NW Prairie View Road in Kansas City and 1305 Branch Street in Platte City will accept donations of furniture, collectibles, clothing and household items (exception being old TVs and baby cribs).
“We are excited to collaborate with HPC, and feel the partnership really maximizes efficiencies to better serve the community,” said Winner.
