NEW BUILDING FOR FURNITURE AT ANGELS DONATION CENTER OPENING SOON
The new building at 112 Needmore Lane in Floyd is nearing completion and there will be an announcement when the dock is ready for receiving donated furniture, and when the furniture is ready for viewing for sale.
Currently, there have been no furniture sales for awhile. Furniture has been tucked away here and there, stacked to the ceiling on top of one another, and gathering dust while awaiting the completion of new construction. The furniture will need to be moved from the current locations into the new building, then placed into aisles so that visitors can look at all the furniture, and finally all the furniture needs to be dusted and cleaned.
As for the status today, take a look at the photos. The future parking area is that pile of dirt and stumps. The building is still being worked on. The driveway is ready only for construction vehicles. The interior is spacious, but there is so much of a backlog of furniture, it may be filled by opening day.
The many volunteers who work at the Donation Center are anxiously awaiting the move of furniture into the new building, as some of their current workspace has to be shared with stored furniture, thus hampering their activities.
Those customers who need to purchase furniture have also been inquiring when they can buy it for their apartment or house. Today I had a tour of the current storage areas, and there are sofas, desks, cabinets, doors, door frames, wood and metal beds, upholstered and wooden chairs, an antique steamer trunk with coat hangers and drawers, stereo cabinet, dining table, and a whole bunch of others that could not be seen due to every cubic foot taken up by furniture of all kinds.
