AWA Reaches Agreement
With New Consignment Mall
POPLAR BLUFF, Mo. (10/04/13) – If you’ve been putting off cleaning out the spare room or finding a new home for that old chair, now’s the time to do it.
The Animal Welfare Alliance (AWA) has reached an agreement with the new Consignment Mall of Poplar Bluff, at 1901 Sunset, just off Westwood Boulevard.
Anyone wishing to can donate gently used furniture or home décor items to AWA through the newly opened resale store. When an AWA-tagged item is sold, the Consignment Mall will turn over 70 percent of the sale price to AWA. (The shop will retain 30 percent to help cover its bookkeeping, utility and personnel expenses.)
Initially, donated items will be limited to furniture, lamps and home décor items, according to Consignment Mall owner and operator Roger Hogg, of Poplar Bluff. He asks that donors call first (573-727-9952) and make an appointment to bring in their items; the mall also offers pick-up service for a fee.
“We are very pleased and excited about this arrangement. We were thinking of opening a resale shop of our own; but the Consignment Mall offered a much better solution that hopefully will create a stream of income for us,” said Nancy Abernathy, AWA secretary and chair of the organization’s Resale Committee.
The Consignment Mall is open 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday (closed Sundays and Mondays). The staff reserves the option to turn down any goods deemed not saleable.
AWA is working toward construction of a no-kill animal shelter on property purchased last year north of Poplar Bluff. The organization also spends up to $650 a month on its programs (distemper/parvovirus vaccinations for puppies in the city pound and $25 to $50 vouchers to help low-income pet owners spay or neuter their dogs or cats.)
The Animal Welfare Alliance of Southeast Missouri is registered with state and federal authorities as a nonprofit organization under Section 501(c)3 of the U.S. tax code. The purpose of the Poplar Bluff-based organization is to foster a spirit of cooperation among all public and private animal care organizations and agencies in the area, to encourage and support the adoption, neutering and spaying of pets and to provide shelter for abandoned animals.
There are two ways to help the animals!
