The Assistance League of Birmingham has opened Encore of Homewood, an upscale thrift store. An all-volunteer membership will manage the shop.
The grand opening was Jan. 10 at PrimeTime Treasures on Oxmoor Rd. Regular store hours will be Tues.-Sat. from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Women’s clothes and accessories and small household items will be sold at low prices.
The store will raise money for the league’s three philanthropic programs: Operation School Bell, which provides new clothing and other items for children in need; Operation Literacy, which provides one-on-one tutoring to children reading below grade level; and PrimeTime Treasures, a shop with items handcrafted by Alabama senior citizens.
