With sadness, the Mennonite Central Committee announces the closure of the MCC Thrift Shop at 101 Hazelglen Drive in Kitchener. This shop's last day open to the public was Friday, February 18.
MCC signed the lease for this shop in December 2019, and the shop scheduled to open in May of 2020. Due to the global pandemic, construction paused in March of 2020. MCC Thrift on Hazelglen finally opened in November 2020. Since then it has experienced public health-related closures and has not had the opportunity to build a solid customer base despite the team at MCC Thrift Hazelglen's strong efforts.
MCC Ontario’s six other thrift shops (St. Catharines, Leamington, New Hamburg, Stouffville, Elmira, Kitchener) continue to show strong results. Their long history and strong customer foundations have allowed them to flourish despite multiple closures.
Please be in prayer for our colleagues and volunteers at MCC Thrift Hazelglen as we travel this path. Thank you.
MCC - Relief, development, and peace in the name of Christ
