After 42 years in its present location, the Elizabeth Guild Thrift Shop is moving! The new location is practically next door with the same easy parking. The thrift shop has opened their new doors this past weekend at their new address 437 W. Elkhorn Avenue. Though still in the same shopping complex, the new store location offers more floor space for displays and merchandise, as well as better dressing rooms, all of which will enhance the shopper’s experience. Displays are primarily set up with the assistance of the many volunteers that help to operate the thrift store. David Trabold encourages both regular customers and visitors alike to stop in and shop and see the new store.
Lizzie’s Boutique, also part of the Elizabeth Guild shops, has moved locations as well. Lizzie’s shoppers will enter thru the main store, but have a completely separate shopping area with the same upscale merchandise as they had in their previous store. Their hours will now match “The Guild” hours so shoppers have more opportunities here as well for clothing, jewelry, crystal, kitchen and household items.
The non-profit store was founded in 1975 to assist residents and temporary summer workers to find good used merchandise at a reasonable prices while raising money for the Elizabeth Knutson Memorial Hospital, currently known to residents as Estes Park Health. The goal and mission statement remain the same to this day.
Both shops are open year-round, current summer hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Donations are being accepted as always and the move will allow easier access with back door drop off options. (Please, no televisions/electronics, mattresses, beds, couches or other large furniture.) We hope our patrons will also join us for the official Grand Opening on Monday, July 1st at 10 a.m.
