From Trussville Tribune staff reports
CLAY –The former Winn Dixie building on Old Springville Road across from the Clay City Hall will soon have a new tenant. Lovelady Thrift store will open their second location in the former grocery store. The building has been vacant since November of 2014.
The building has over 56,000 square feet, about 20,000 square feet more than the first Lovelady Thift Store, according to the real estate listing.
The first Lovelady Thrift Store opened in 2010 in the former Circuit City store in Eastwood near the now closed Century Plaza mall.
The Lovelady Center is a charity that helps women make the transition as they move from prison back into society. Revenue from the thrift stores helps to support that cause.
The announcement came via social media when the organization posted the news on Facebook.
“We are beyond blessed to announce the opening of our second Lovelady Thrift location in Clay-Chalkville at the former Winn Dixie,” the group announced. “With that said, we need your gently used items! Lovelady Thrift fully supports The Lovelady Center’s 400+ women and children and provides a safe work therapy environment for job training.”
Lovelady plans to have the store open by Spring of 2016. To donate items to the thrift store, call 205-951-9230 for a pickup.
