Longview nonprofit opens new thrift store
LONGVIEW, Texas (KLTV) - A new Thrift store has opened its doors in Longview.
The Twice Loved Marketplace was put together by the non-profit organization One Love Longview. Executive Director Amada Veasy says they have received many donations from the public for immediate needs items that help clients in need get back on their feet. But they started getting donations of items that they had to refuse, and a store seemed like the next logical step.
“One love has been 100 percent community funded since the very beginning. We don’t receive any state or government grants. And we don’t really want the red tape that comes along with it and so we have grown so large and our services have just expanded so much that we have a need to have a thrift store now to be able to fund what goes on next door,” Veasy said.
Twice Loved Marketplace is open Wednesday through Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 1017 McCann Road in Longview.
