The Noah’s Ark annual Bag Day event is coming up Friday, August 9, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Customers may buy marked bags in the parking lot for $4 each, fill them with store goods and walk away with as many items as the bags will carry. Customers are free to purchase as many $4 bags as they wish for the Bag Day sale.
Any items not fitting in the bag are 80% off the regular price. Deep price reductions are also available in the last days of August leading up to Bag Day. Bag Day marks the end of summer season for the Ark, which, after August 9, is closed for cleaning and repair.
Operated by the Women of St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church for more than 50 years, Noah’s Ark offers for sale, at bargain prices, merchandise of all kinds, including women’s and men’s clothing, children’s clothes, bedding, kitchen electronics and housewares, furniture and home furnishings, and a varied selection of books—including excellent vacation reading—in its own special book station, “Barnes & Noah.” Proceeds from Noah’s Ark sales, coupled with monies from the parish’s annual budget, go to more than twenty-five local, regional and global charities and agencies.
On October 1, Noah’s Ark reopens for business, Tuesdays and Fridays, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for the duration of October. In November, the winter season’s full schedule resumes, weekdays and the first Saturday of each month, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Noah’s Ark does not take donations between August 9 and September 1. September 1 and thereafter, donations are accepted—and appreciated. The Ark staff and St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church extend heartfelt thanks to all donors who help to make the Ark’s charitable mission a continuing success.
